Vrede en Lust Syrah 2010

Our appealing Shiraz is an elegant wine with a supple fruit and spice balance prompting the name change to Syrah.

The wine is made from selected vineyards on Vrede en Lust and Ricton properties. The grapes are picked by hand and the selected blocks are fermented separately and only at maturation are they blended.

Personal Note :Syrah is the French word for Shiraz

A Rhone style Shiraz showing violets, plums and sweet spice. The smooth tannins on the palate confirm the promise of this elegant wine. Velvet textured layers showcases this wine through to a juicy mouth feel.
