Description

CELLAR INFORMATION Leaf fall occurred at the normal time which allowed good reserves to build up. Winter started late with warmer day and night temperatures and lower rainfall than in the 2016 growing season. A warm spring resulted in early, however uniform budding. A cool yet dry and windy November/December resulted in drier soils and small berries. January rains moistened soils and cool evening temperatures allowed for slower ripening of our grapes.

The D.W. Syrah/Syrah/Shiraz, of which only a tiny amount of 600 bottles was produced, is without a doubt the most beguiling Syrah/Syrah/Shiraz I’ve tasted from anywhere in the world, let alone the New World. There are layers upon layers of complexity on the nose, with aromas of freshly picked violets and rose petals, smoky fynbos and crushed white peppercorns. This is a wine of understated power with the potential to age for decades and we can’t wait to see how the flavours of dark plums and mulberries, graphite and tobacco leaf develop over the years… provided it lasts that long, of course, as the winery have sold out!
