A wonderfully expressive Syrah with smoky black olive fruit, concentrated and densely flavoured.
Stunning, world-class Sauvignon Blanc has put the Bloemendal Wine Estate firmly on the map as a sought after producer among world wines. Situated in the heart of picturesque Durbanville just 30 minutes north of Cape Town, the 239 hectare Estate includes Kanonberg Mountain. This hilltop has amazing views of Table Mountain, False Bay, Stellenbosch, Swartland and beyond. It is here on the Southern Slope or "Suider-Terras" where the vineyards are planted with French cultivars, predominantly Sauvignon Blanc. The eponymous wine "Suider Terras" has been hailed as arguably the best Sauvignon Blanc in South Africa, having gained worldwide prominence for its superior quality since the first bottling in 1987. We are delighted to offer this new precise range of wines from this top notch boutique winery.
The deep red soils are predominantly heavy Hutton clay, with the remainder comprising Tukulu, Oakleaf and Westleigh soil types. They are deep, cool and well drained, but with good water retention, allowing minimal irrigation, so nature can take its course and let the terroir shine through.
Cool climate Syrah is a passion for Francois Haasbroek, the winemaker. Fermented in four tonne open top concrete tanks with manual punch downs for extraction. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrels, the wine is then aged in a combination of 500 and 300 litre French oak barrels over a 16 month period.
Enjoy with lamb, venison, steak, game or a rich lentil stew.
