An explosion of smoky and spicy aromas leads to flavours of black currant, cola and pepper. A well balanced wine with a long lingering finish of cedar, vanilla and dark chocolate. Savour this wine on its ow or match with spiced ribs or grilled lamb or hearty pasta dishes.
The south facing slopes of Kacaba's Proprietors Block capture the full day's sun and produce award quality fruit to create this estate Syrah. All fruit for this wine was hand-harvested after which the clusters were sorted by hand. Then all remaining fruit ran through the destemmer removing stems prior to the individual berries being sorted, by hand. This labour intense beginning ensured that only the most ideal grapes made it to fermentation. These premium berries were then delivered to an open-top fermenter where they were permitted a period of rest on skins. Warm fermentation temperatures were encouraged along with gentle cap punchdowns twice daily to achieve the desired colour and structure. Extended maceration time on skins prior to final pressing added texture and complexity. The wine was then transferred directly to a new and second fill French and American oak barrel for 12 months of ageing. Finally the wine was racked cold stabilised and after a course filtration finally bottled in Oct 2014.

When you bring your nose to the glass it will be impossible to not raise your eyebrows. There is a nice intensity of fruit in this bottle with cherry, strawberry and plum but the signature pepper note is still there. The fruit on the palate is juicy and fills your mouth from cheek to cheek. There is a slight licorice note that is unexpected and exciting that works its way in with the fruit. The tannin is approachable after opening but you should make some room in your cellar for the next 3-5 years to enjoy this wine. You could pair this wine with roasted or grilled red meats, but there is nothing wrong with enjoy this wine on its own. 5 Stars
