About this wine

As DeMorgenzon’s reputation has grown in recent years, so too has their wine range. The Reserve Syrah premiered in the outstanding 2012 vintage and represents the finest barrel selection from this formidable Stellenbosch estate. A rich, berry fruit nose with lots of ripe, red plum and whiffs of white pepper with some floral notes in the background, including violets, lavender and spring blossoms. Full in the mouth with tremendous youthful vigour and layers of berry fruit with developing spices of pepper, cinnamon, clove and vanilla. Gentle oak integration shows and supports the elegance and roundness at this early age.

    string(832) "Also known as Syrah, Shiraz was the variety which introduced the world to the concentrated and masculine wines of 1990s’ Australia. Here in the Barossa Valley, Langhorne Creek, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale it produces wines of great density and richness. In South Africa there tends to be more structure and freshness with earthy tannins. It is a variety which alters in the bottle very much as a result of the individual winemaker’s philosophy, as well as reflecting the unique terroir of the estates. Great with oak, it offers lavender, kirsch, black cherry and cured meat aromas and flavours. In its native Northern Rhône it is famous for the wines of Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie, whilst in the New World can lay claim to providing Australia with its two most famous wines; Henschke’s Hill of Grace and Penfold’s Grange."
