Rustenberg Buzzard Kloof Syrah

VARIETAL
Red
ORIGIN
Simonsberg
VINTAGE
2015

This wine is sourced from a unique vineyard site on the estate. Previously the “Rustenberg Stellenbosch Syrah”, the “Buzzard Kloof Syrah” is named for the Jackal and Steppe Buzzards which can be seen circling the thermal currents which rise above the ravine (kloof), within which the Syrah vineyard is situated.

The vineyard consistently produces the most well-structured and full-bodied Syrah on the estate, characterised by gamey, spicy aromas and flavours showing more savoury than sweet fruit complexity with a solid tannin structure and full body.

On the nose: the wine exhibits an enticing nose of pepper, violets and ripe berry fruits.

On the palate: gamey, spicy aromas and flavours showing more savoury than sweet fruit complexity with a solid tannin structure and full body.
