Description

Old Road Wine Pepper Wind Syrah 2018

Old Road Wine Pepper Wind Syrah is an intense single-vineyard red. The bouquet is a full whiff of ripe berries and white pepper aromas. Possesses exceptional structure and balance with juicy fruit flavours, a bright acidity and earthy minerality. Blackberry and raspberry fruit flavours with spicy oak, earthy and pepper nuances. Closes in a moreish and refreshing finish.

100% Syrah. The fruit comes from Old Road Wine’s Pepperwind vineyard, a single vineyard on a cool site on the eastern slopes of the Franschhoek mountains with exposure to cool afternoon breezes. These south easterly breezes are instrumental in the ‘peppery’ characteristic of the wine.

Hand harvesting the fruit in small bins at optimal ripeness. The grapes receive extended skin contact for optimal colour and flavour extraction before their racking to barrels for fermentation. After primary fermentation, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in the same barrels. Finally, the wine ages for 18 months in the same second and third fill French oak barrels.
