Rust en Vrede Syrah Stellenbosch Single Vineyard 2017

$40

A rich red, with juicy blackberry and boysenberry fruit accented by mocha, black licorice, tobacco and mineral notes. This is playing at full volume, with dense, fine tannins and racy acidity amping up the expressive flavor range, but all the parts are in good balance, giving this drive and good energy. Drink now through 2032. 350 cases made.

Summary

Grape

Syrah / Shiraz

This dark-skinned red grape most likely originated in France's Rhône Valley, which is still considered its most famous home. Syrah is the sole grape in the reds of the Northern Rhône Valley, but it's also a blending partner in Southern Rhône appellations, including Châteauneuf-du-Pape, where it adds structure and body to Grenache-based wines. The grape was brought to Australia in the 19th century, and is better-known there as Shiraz, which it's also sometimes called in South Africa.
