Bradgate Syrah 2014
“Limited Release, cool-climate Syrah from the master winemakers at Jordan”
Produced entirely from a small plot in the Stellenbosch Kloof, which offers cooler Mediterranean conditions, typically a full 3C cooler than normal Stellenbosch temperatures. This cooler climate allows for later ripening and thus greater intensity of flavors within the fruit itself. Hand-harvested with manual fruit selection. Selected grapes were tank-fermented before moving to small French oak barriques (225L) for 9 to 16 months. The wine displays fantastic Syrah characteristics with the careful making adding a smokiness and spice. This goes extremely well with all Italian foods, especially pizza and pasta, but is also a wine that drinks beautifully on its own.
