Our gracious Steenberg Syrah’s full red colour is a sign of the flavours and aromas that await you in the glass. Violet, nutmeg, boysenberry, and cherry sherbet on the nose transform into a medium-bodied, delicate black fruit and spice driven wine with soft, fine tannins, integrated acidity and a silky texture. The ideal partner to fillet au poivre – in fact all red meats grilled over open flames.

Our Syrah grapes were picked in 4 batches and fermented separately. They were crushed and de-stemmed before a 5 day cold soak pre-ferment, followed by 15 days fermentation. The wine underwent 2 gentle pump overs per day. After fermentation, the wine was transferred to barrel for malolactic fermentation. The wine spent a total of 15 months in large (500l) French oak barrels: 13% new oak, 26% 2nd fill 10% 3rd fill and 51% 4th fill. The wine was racked out of barrel and received a light fining before bottling in November 2017.
