Constantiavale Syrah 2018

By , 23 September 2019


Attorney Alan Jeftha and sons Jaimie and Raphael planted just under 1ha of Syrah on their Constantia property next to Eagles’ Nest and then got the renowned Duncan Savage to consult on making some wine, 850 bottles of the maiden vintage 2018 now available and a promising debut it is, too.

The nose is particularly primary with a hint of reduction before violets, dark cherry, herbs and pepper while the palate is light-bodied with lemon-like acidity and crunchy tannins. Alcohol: 14%. Price: R210 a bottle.

Editor’s rating: 90/100.
