About this Item

Syrah, 2011
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
David and Rita Trafford discovered the future Sijnn land while on holiday in Malgas in 2000. The soil and landscape reminded them of Portugal and they were immediately intrigued. A purchase agreement and more than 200 soil profiles later, approximately ten hectares of vines were planted and the name Sijnn Wines was appropriated to the venture – fittingly so as the word 'sijnn' is derived from the Khoisan word meaning riverbank. Today Sijnn Wines has become well known for our interesting and bold choices of cultivars and award-winning blends.

Critics Ratings

‘Captivating cool-climate Syrah. Intensity of dark spice and berry fragrance in 2011 echoed in the layered flavours and fine-grained, mouthwatering tannins. Compelling in its delicacy and freshness. Natural ferment, unfined/filtered, like all their reds, no new oak.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2014, 5*

‘A racy style, with terrific cut to the red currant, damson plum and anise notes. The long, floral-framed finish features a pleasant sanguine streak. Very pure.’ - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 91/100 (Apr 2014)
