2017 Syrah, Reyneke, Stellenbosch

Peppery fruit, with wild strawberries, and plenty of texture on the palate. This is energetic with lovely fragrance, and is just so drinkable.

TASTING NOTES

If you can't afford the Reyneke Reserve Red, this costs around a third of the price and is another stonking Syrah. With some whole bunch fermentation adding some white pepper and clove notes, this is savoury and very aromatic, with red fruit sweetness and understated oak.
