Lot 82

Leeuwenkuil
Heritage Series Syrah, 2012
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
This is the maiden release of this fast becoming cult wine. It is produced from a single vineyard on the western slope of the Riebeeksrivier ‘côte’ that produces extraordinarily concentrated, small berries which translates into a wine of both power and finesse; much like the famous wines of the Northern Rhône. This region is known for its exceptional vineyards that form part of some of SA’s most prestigious Syrah-based wines.

Bright, pure-fruited perfume from whole-berry fermentation on 12. Red-fruit palate a touch stalky & herbaceous. Fresh acidity, fine dry tannins. Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2015, 4*

Almost black. A bit reduced. Quite impressively broad succulent Syrah on the palate. Very savoury and leathery. Not at all sweet.’ – Jancis Robinson (January 2015), 16+/20
