Mellish Family Vineyards Bakenkop Syrah 2018

“An extremely limited Syrah  from the Durbanville Wine Route.”

Availability: Out of stock
Style: Red
Varietal: Shiraz Syrah
Country: South Africa | Durbanville
750ml ABV. 14.5

These 19 year old vines are located on the South-Facing slopes of Bakenkop on Welbeloond farm in Durbanville.

The grapes were hand-picked early in the morning and wild fermented in open top fermenters.

The wine was matured in older French oak barrels for 9 months.

No finning was implemented – only a very light filtration before bottling.

On the palate there is a good density of dark fruit with distinct black cherry.

As the wine evolves there are some floral notes and a red fruited elegance which appears on the finish.

Organically farmed since 2015, but not certified.
