Scented, silky, spicy and floral. Made in the clouds, a large component of this Syrah hails from Karibib, a granitic site at the very top ridge of the Stellenbosch farm. A weather system informs the grapes growing here; a regular occurring cloud formation is drawn in from the Atlantic Ocean and only covers this specific site. The diffused light and cool temperatures safeguard the intense aromatic quality of the fruit; dark-green coiled garrigue, jasmine, violets, and white pepper scents, livened by fresh cherries and wild strawberries.

 

Fruit from the Bottelary ward brings structure and backbone, adding an inky depth of black fruit; while Devon Valley grapes give refreshing lift and linear acidity. The clarity of fruit is underscored by charcuterie spice and grapefruit pith, driven along a granular grip of tannins. Just a hint of bitter cherry on the composed, detailed finish.
