Sons of Sugarland Syrah 2020
By Christian Eedes, 12 April 2021
Grapes grown by Jozua Joubert of Polkadraai farm Karibib, winemaking by Reenen Borman of Boschkloof, Sons of Sugarland Syrah have quickly become established as one of South Africa’s finest examples of Syrah. The 2020, as always, is 100% whole-bunch fermented and matured in concrete and comes across as particularly light and energetic – red berries plus subtle notes of rose, fresh herbs, and white pepper on the nose while the palate displays pure fruit, bright acidity, and powdery tannins. Price: R425 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 95/100.
