Wandering Beeste Syrah is bold, structured yet reserved. A wine with rustic charm, wild blackberry and cherry aromas, as well as a distinctive earthiness, with a backbone of bracing acidity. 50% whole berry, 50% whole bunch fermentation which gives that tannic structure and vitality. The finish is long, broad and bright. A wild animal in need of taming! Great fun!
The Swartland’s soils consist of the Cape’s great granite, sandy loams but also schists and shales which are the two that inform this Syrah. 50% whole bunch, 50% whole berry, the bright tannic structure of this comes from the stems and the soils. A skinny Syrah more bones than flesh, more Nguni than Heiffer, and the better for it. No two vintages have quite been the same – same schist, different day.
