Tasting notes:
'Ink-tinged purple hue on svelte, home-grown 2017 matches dark plum & mulberry intensity, complex nuances of leather, black pepper & savoury herbs. Fine-grained tannin & serious wooding (40% new for 12 months, older small-oak for 7 more) indicate a fine future. Also in magnum.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'The top Syrah from De Trafford is all sourced from this isolated, picturesque estate’s own vineyards at the top of the Blaauwklippen Road. More Cornas than Côte Rotie, it's thick, opaque and tannic, with huge structure, fynbos and garrigue notes, lots of meat and spice and the concentration to age further in bottle. Drink 2023-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 91/100

'Deep youthful red colour, intense spice, leather, mulberry and sweet dark plum nose. A little pepper and savoury herbs. Intense fine grained tannins on the palate. Needs some decanting.' – Winemaker

Alc: 14.8% | TA: 5.2 g/L | PH: 3.58
