2017 Syrah, Mullineux, Swartland
The Syrah is as true an expression of this grape variety in the Swartland’s varied terroirs as you’ll find. In 2017, it’s a blend of four parcels planted in the stony Shale and Schist based soils of the Kasteelberg; two parcels of dry-land, bush vines grown in the decomposed Granite of the Paardeberg; and one on the rolling, iron-rich soils west of Malmesbury. The vines are aged between 22 and 30 years, and while delicious on first release, it’s a wine that will age impressively.
