Trizanne Signature Wines Sondagskloof new releases
By Christian Eedes, 15 October 2019
Trizanne Barnard of Trizanne Signature Wines has released two new wines from Sondagskloof, the emerging wine growing area situated between Hermanus and Cape Agulhas. Tasting notes and ratings as follows:
Trizanne Signature Wines Sondagskloof White 2018
Approximate retail price: R270
From Sauvignon Blanc, 50% skin fermented and then matured for six months in new oak, 50% barrel fermented and matured for six months before the two components were blended and returned to barrel for a further 10 months. A compelling nose of peach, nectarine, blackcurrant and some mushroom-like character while the palate is rich yet balanced – plenty of fruit weight plus a great line of acidity, the finish super-long. Possesses both depth and detail. Alcohol: 13%.
Editor’s rating: 96/100.
Trizanne Signature Wines Sondagskloof Syrah 2018
Approximate retail price: R245
Matured for 16 months in French oak. Red and black berries, a brush of vanilla plus subtle notes of white pepper, lilies and fynbos. Full bodied and smooth-textured, this has good fruit definition, quite gentle acidity and a gently savoury finish.
Editor’s rating: 92/100.
