IRON Syrah

IRON Syrah

Product Description

The IRON Syrah vineyard, on the rolling hills outside of Malmesbury, has always been very important in creating a Syrah with incredible mid-palate, deep fragrance and round tannins, due to the ancient, rich, gravelly Koffieklip soils they are grown on.  The dry land bush vines on this exposed site are the earliest ripening of all of our Syrahs and gives us insight to the quality of the vintage ahead.

Tasting Notes

Brimming with flavours of wild blueberry and dark plum that lead, into hints of tomato leaf, aromatic allspice and a floral complexity.  The full-bodied meatiness of this wine, has a freshness and long finish that intertwines with its fine grain tannins.  The IRON Syrah with its natural extract, deep perfume and round mid-palate, is always the most open and attractive of the three single soil Syrahs in its youth.  Can be aged 10-20 years.
