The first vintage of the Stellenbosch Reserve Kruithuis Syrah shows a combination of red and black fruit on the nose – cranberry, red cherry, ripe plum and cassis. Fruit is layered with sweet spicy notes of nutmeg, all spice and a touch of vanilla. The palate is plush with soft, ripe tannins, and a juicy mid palate showing that same combination of red and black fruit. The fruit profile is lifted by a fresh acidity, giving the wine a medium body and a velvety finish.
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.
