Klippenkop Syrah

Klippenkop Syrah

The word klippen is a geographical term for an outcrop of rock, whilst kop in Afrikaans translates as either a hillock or a head.

Vineyards

Syrah is by nature a vigorous grower, so a 6 wire Perold system is used to manage the canopy. Planted in deep Karoo and shale soils that are rich in lime. This rich lime content ensures a healthy growing medium. Bunch size is kept below 120 grams per bunch to ensure concentration of fruit.

Vinification

Grapes were harvested at full ripeness between 24.5-26.5B from a selection of vineyards with the average age of vines between 7 and 9 years. The wine was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 28C from 9 days to retain a delicate fruit component and to add body and weight.

Tasting Notes

This full bodied wine shows freshly crushed black pepper aromas with hints of cinnamon and cloves on the nose with lots of brambly red berry fruit, rich mulberry and well integrated vanilla tones.

Enjoy now with roast beef, stews, lamb, venison, pasta and steak.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
