Essay South African Syrah 2018


From the maker: Old-vine Shiraz and cinsaut are the base of this wine. We have intentionally made a softer, fruitier style to lend the wine extra drinkability and to match a wider range of food. Juicy red-berry fruit flavors are backed by a soft palate and accessible tannins. A portion of viognier was co-fermented with the shiraz to contribute softness to the palate and some floral notes to the aroma.
