Erika Obermeyer Syrah 2018

R2,670.00per case of 6

A cool climate Stellenbosch Syrah showcasing Syrah’s restrained power, finesse and elegance. The nose is alluring perfumed, showing vibrant aromatics of dark-toned fruit with interwoven cocoa, cassis, salty liquorice, pepper spice and fynbos. Deeply complex, the palate delivers an elegant yet textured mouthfeel with a silky smooth and polished finish.

 

“I strive to capture a true sense of place, whilst authentically expressing the inherent character of the grapes. This hand-crafted range delivers terroir specific wines with captivating flavours, intricacy, superb structure, and outstanding cellaring potential. Erika O is a pint-sized boutique winery, crafting only small batches and offering a very individual product, which mirrors the immense passion, pride and focus.

The wines are refreshing, elegant, beautifully balanced and well suited to food. The intention is to create wines which authentically express South Africa’s unique vineyard sites and exceptional diversity. Consider the Erika O wines as the ultimate ode to the miracle and wonder which is the magnificent South African Winelands.

I have always maintained the following ingredients are essential in the art of crafting a fine wine: true terroir, balance, honesty, and a light touch. They tell a rich and deeply fascinating story of a time, a place and a maker. Please enjoy the wines as much as I relish the extraordinary “soul journey” they have taken me on.” – Erika Obermeyer
