“Savage “Girl Next Door” 2020, Grapes from one of the saltiest, windswept 0.38 hectares of organic Syrah vines near Fish Hoek in Cape Town. These 15-year-old trellised vines on sandy gravel soils were originally planted for ornamental purposes. The 2020 vintage once again sees a 50% whole cluster portion included in the natural fermentation. Initially delicately savory and perfumed, the aromatics are fairly restrained showing notes of lavender, cured bresaola, hints of iron, graphite, and piquant plummy blackberry spice. The palate texture is incredibly elegant and fine-boned, showing light touch winemaking, silky soft dry powdery tannins, and a smooth, cool, classical finish revealing blackberry fruits, black peppercorns, and a gentle maritime salinity. A very fine, supple, complete expression of Syrah.” – Greg Sherwood, MW
