STEENBERG SYRAH 2017

p/b R205.00

Wine Club price R174.25 p/b

Our gracious Steenberg Syrah’s full red colour is a sign of the flavours and aromas that await you in the glass. Dried prune, cloves, plums, 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.

In The Cellar

Our Syrah grapes were picked in batches and fermented separately.
They were crushed and de-stemmed before a 5 day cold soak pre -ferment, followed by an average of 15 days fermentation. The wine underwent 2 gentle pump overs per day. After fermentation, the wine was transferredto barrel for malolactic fermentation. The wine spent a total of 15 months in large (500L) French oak barrels, the majority of which were 3rd fill barrels with the balance in 1st and 2nd fill. The wine was racked out of barrel and received a light fining before bottling in October 2018.
