Single Vineyard Syrah 2016, Rust en Vrede

£82.75 per bottle

About this wine

‘From granitic soils, the Rust en Vrede Single Vineyard Syrah displays its hallmark intensity of colour, aromatics and flavours handsomely. Concentrated aromatics of blackberries, blueberries and plums flourish alongside flavours of star anise, black pepper and cloves. Sweet tobacco and vanilla pod oak are lavished on both the nose and the palate and nicely compliments the opulent fruit. This is a seductive wine from the 2016 vintage, which with its abundance of fruit and inherent structure, will allow it to age a decade or longer without difficulty.’ Jolette Steyn (Wine Cellar)

Ageing Potential: 10 to 15 years

Serving temperature: 14 to 16° Celsius

    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."
