The 2019 Stellenbosch Reserve Kruithuis Syrah has an attractive nose of expressive black berries and crème de cassis that combine with pepper-spice and cured meat. Ripe, velvety tannins balance well with the expressive black fruit on the palate with notes of caramel and nutmeg adding complexity to savoury notes of black pepper, cedar, and toast. The rich fruit profile and judicious use of oak provide beautiful midpalate weight. The finish is savoury with a note of perfume.
The wines of the Stellenbosch Reserve pay homage to iconic buildings of Stellenbosch town. These landmarks represent the legacy of the town, in the same way that the wines represent classic varietal expressions of the Stellenbosch terroir. Through a combination of wine, architecture and heritage the wine can tell a story that is uniquely Stellenbosch.
The Building: The Munitions House (Kruithuis)
The Kruithuis was completed in 1777 as the munitions building for the Dutch East India Company. Prior to this, the officers of the Stellenbosch cavalry had to go to Cape Town for military training once a year. Today the VOC Kruithuis is a symbol of military strength and power, which is reflected in the powerful fruit flavours and structure of the 2018 Syrah.
