Gabrielskloof Syrah


Gabrielskloof Syrah 750ml



Part of the Gabriëlskloof Estate range of boutique-style wines that always over-deliver on quality and value, this 2017 Syrah lives up to their reputation. The conditions leading up to the 2017 harvest were hot and dry for the second consecutive year, leading to smaller berries and even more concentrated flavours. All the fruit was hand-picked and whole bunch pressed. Fermentation and ageing took place in the barrel and the tank, and maturation over 12 months in second- and third-fill barrels. Angela Lloyd gave the wine 89 points in the Platter 2020 with the following tasting notes: “Flavoursome 2017 combines youthful pleasure with firm structure. Spice, dark soft berries and a hint of truffle, ending on satisfying, savoury note. Balanced freshness lifts 14.7% alcohol.”
