Hilton Vineyards The Bounty Syrah 2020
“A bright ruby red Syrah, hand-harvested from Elgin vineyards. An effortlessly elegant varietal mastered by Richard Hilton.”
R570.00 per bottle (South Africa)
A vibrant Syrah produced in finite volumes of intensely flavoured grape clusters.
The Bounty Syrah is named on account of the clone SH22 which yields bountiful flavours to the grapes produced and harvested from the vineyard.
Once harvested by hand, the grapes were 100% de-stemmed and crushed with zero addition of sulphur. Only indigenous yeast was used during fermentation.
The juice was racked into small French oak barrels (40% new) for 16 months resulting in a wine with vibrant intensity, subtle tannins, and a balanced mouthfeel.
The wine will continue to develop over the next 10 years.
Decant 1-2 hours before drinking. (No fining or filtration)
