Tasting notes:
'We pursued a single goal: making Syrah with voluptuous fruit that reflect Terroir and Passion. Syrah African Dream detaches itself from the standard of South Africa. Rich and well-balanced, this wine possesses a perfume of mixed spice and a palate of soft blackberry flavours.' – Winemaker

Tasting notes on the 2017 vintage:
'The nose is quite heady with top notes of flowers and fynbos before black berries and pepper. The palate is marked by a good core of fruit, fresh acidty and crunchy tannins – impressive depth while still presenting as savoury.' – Winemag Syrah Report 2019, 93/100

About Julien Schaal:
Julien Schaal is an Alsace winemaker who fell in love with South Africa upon his first visit in 2003. He immediately saw the potential of South African Chardonnay and a year later, roped in friend, Gordon Newton Johnson (of Newton Johnson vineyards), to help him in his new South African venture. Fascinated by the cool-climate areas of Walker Bay, Elgin and the Hemel-en-Aarde, Julien has sourced grapes from vineyards in each of these regions to create wines that represent the different characteristics of each. Julien now spends each year jumping betweenAlsace and South Africa for the winemaking seasons.
