Lammershoek, The Innocent Syrah 750ml 2018South Africa, Swartland
'A variety of fermentation techniques used including some 20% whole-bunch before maturation lasting 11 months in a combination of concrete tanks, wooden foudre and old barrels. Wonderfully distinct aromatics of red and black fruit, flowers, herbs and cured meat while the palate is wonderfully juicy and fresh with some crunch to the tannins.' – Winemag Prescient Shiraz Report 2020, Top 10
'Typical Swartland style, spicy Shiraz – grippy yet elegant with ripe tannins. Derived from selected grapes in three 15 - 50 year-old dryland bush-vine vineyards.' – Winemaker
Lammershoek, which means ‘lambs’ corner’, is situated in the Paardeberg Mountain in Swartland. Their 180-hectare property has 60 hectares planted with vines including white cultivar old bush-vines. Lammershoek is also part of the Old Vine Project with some vineyards dating back to 1966. As one of the oldest wineries in the Swartland, Lammershoek works as naturally as possible in both the vineyards and the cellar.
