Strandveld Syrah 2020

R1,404.00per case of 6

A full- bodied wine with aromas of white pepper, fynbos and spice and a rich palate with firm tannins backed by well-integrated oak. This serious Rhône style Syrah is big in structure and layered with intense black berry fruit flavours and savoury notes.

 

Nestled between Elim and Cape Agulhas, 9km from the sea, lies Strandveld Vineyards, named after the rugged coastal belt spanning Africa’s southern tip. Its maritime climate, diverse soil, and severe winds shape unique terroir. In 2001, inspired by explorers like Bartholomeu Diaz, enthusiasts established the winery on a rundown farm near Cape Agulhas. Despite harsh conditions, they cultivated 80 hectares focusing on Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz, and Pinot Noir, with smaller plots of Semillon, Viognier, Grenache, and Mourvedre. Today, the modern cellar produces distinctive wines reflecting the pioneering spirit of early sailors navigating these tempestuous seas.
