Remhoogte Reserve Syrah 2016
“Single Vineyard Syrah from the Simonsberg Mountains at its best.”
R467.50 per bottle (South Africa)
From a single block, nestled in the famous Simonsberg mountains, the best four rows of vines were selected for this very special “Reserve” wine. With an incredibly tiny yield, all grapes are hand harvested and hand sorted to ensure that only the best bunches make it to the bottle. Half of the grapes are destemmed and the other 50% left whole bunch. The juice is then left to free run, then transferred to French oak barriques for malolactic fermentation and maturation. The link from the vineyard to the bottle is as close as possible. The wine is unfined and unfiltered, and no acid adjustments are done. This wine has an abundant aromatic nose and long lingering finish.
