Painted Wolf Swartland Syrah 2015

Tasting Notes

A rich harmonious full bodied wine with juicy dark fruit, savory smoked ham, all spice and aromatic wood aromas. The wine has a coating mid palate and a long finish. The acid is bright and the tannins are ripe and present.

Winemaker Notes

The grapes were handpicked over a few days in late February 2013 into small baskets and taken to our cellar where they were destalked and gently crushed. We fermented the Syrah in small open bins where it was hand punched 4 times a day. We prefer the native yeast from the vineyard. The wine matured in French and Hungarian oak for a total of 20 months. We bottled 10051 bottles. Our partner Billy Hughes grows organic grapes at Kasteelsig vineyard in the Swartland region. The grapes are dry farmed. Soil in the vineyard is primarily Glenrosa, a composite soil of decomposed shale with a little granite. Vines are 12 years old and the yield in 2013 was around 7 tons to the hectare.
