(how do my ratings work?)
Hails from: Cape South Coast, South Africa. Grapes: Syrah
Winemaker Samantha O’Keefe makes my favourite South African Syrah, period. A mix of Greyton and Elgin fruit, the wine starts savoury with hints of olive, pepper and herb before juicy red cherry and black fruits burst out of the mid-palate. The finish is structured, mouth-watering and moreish. Not as big as Rhone but that makes it all the more alluring.
