Porseleinberg Syrah 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  483941

If ever a South African wine tasted of specific place it is Porseleinberg, the Cape's answer to Cornas in terms of its dense, compact structure, but with a personality that is all its own: wild, savoury and unruly with tannins that can be demanding in their youth. Fermented with 100% whole bunches and aged in a combination of concrete eggs and foudres, it's ripe, but not overly so, with notes of garrigue and tangerine and a stony, compact finish. Drink date: 2022-2035. Score - 96. (Tim Atkin, MW, timatkin.com, South Africa Special Report 2018)
