Voorloper Bush Vines Syrah 2018
By Christian Eedes, 13 April 2021
Mesmerizing. That’s ultimately the best way to describe Voorloper Bush Vines Syrah 2018 from Daniël de Waal of Pella Wines/Super Single Vineyards. Grapes from a 1985 Stellenbosch vineyard on granite, winemaking involved 50% whole-bunch fermentation before 18 months in third-fill oak. The nose shows blackberries, pepper, a hint of lavender, and charcuterie while the palate has a great presence – a wonderful core of fruit, lemon-like acidity and firm but fine tannins, the finish long and savoury. Seamless and delicious. Price: R350 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 98/100.
