Reserve Syrah 2014 Magnum 1500ml
92 points, “The palate is sweet and supple on the entry with white pepper tinged black fruit, a keen line of acidity and quite a structured, dense finish that offloads plenty of spicy, white pepper character, almost garrigue-like in style.” – Wine Advocate
DeMorgenzon’s Reserve Syrah 2014 is jampacked with ripe berry flavours, white pepper, spiced plum crumble and hedgerow brambles. The granite-rich soils create a wine that tastes like a Rhône red warmed by the South African sunshine. And it will mature and evolve beautifully in this magnum, if you can keep your corkscrew away from it!
It’s no secret that we love DeMorgenzon, they make our own Chenin Blanc. The name means ‘morning sun’, because it’s the first winery in Stellenbosch to receive the sun each day because of its high altitude and steep slopes. Their vineyards are full of wildflowers, giving the estate the feel of botanic garden than a working farm. DeMorgenzon also play baroque and early classical music to their growing vines, as they enjoy it themselves and numerous studies have suggested that it can help fruit production and root growth. Their super talented winemaker Carl van der Merwe brings bags of experience to the team, including a stint at Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande. This is a standout winery that does things a little differently.
