Sumpai Syrah 2016, Kalfu

£17.85 per bottle

About this wine

Kalfu Sumpai Syrah has great character and personality, revealing herbal notes, such as pennyroyal, lavender and thyme, complemented by soft aromas of violets and wild Chilean maqui and murtilla berries.  Medium bodied, with crisp acidity and great freshness – the round, firm tannins underpin a gentle, elegant background of French oak in which spices intermingle with herbs.  Best served at between 15° C – 16° C this wine pairs well with pasta dishes, white meat and cold cuts.  This wine can be enjoyed now or, if cellared under the right conditions, will increase in complexity over the next 8 years.

    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."
