Lismore Syrah 2015
Yowza.

While the 2014 vintage of Syrah by Samantha O’Keefe under the Lismore label was a truly beautiful wine (see here), the 2015 (WO Cape South Coast and apparently made from 50% Greyton and 50% Elgin fruit) is still striking but less flawless.

The nose is very heady – lots of black berries, black pepper, lilies and fynbos. The palate is super-concentrated with fresh acidity and chewy tannins while there’s some meaty savouriness to the finish. Dramatic is putting it mildly. Wine Cellar price: R305 a bottle.

#WinemagRating; 91/100.
