The Prospector Syrah 2016, Jordan

£17.95 per bottle

About this wine

Jordan’s The Prospector Syrah is an acknowledgement of the massive public support the winery received in the campaign to save the Cape Winelands from a recent application to prospect and mine various minerals.  The 2016 vintage displays notes of peppered charcuterie, chipotle and red fruits in abundance with a medium–bodied framework that lends itself to a variety of meat-based dishes and cooking techniques.

Food pairing: Perfect with dry aged Chalmar ribeye, game and duck Magret

    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."
