This Syrah perfectly epitomises this desire, of pure and a honest expression of the cool-climate vineyard it comes from in Elgin, while also bearing the hallmarks of Northern Rhône. Black fruits on the bouquet are joined by floral notes, black pepper and fynbos. A palate of spice and bramble with good freshness, structure and persistent tannins on the finish.

The Van Wyk Family Vineyards. Justin, of Constantia Glen Winery fame, has spent the last six years working with select vineyards planted across the greater Western Cape. As for the inspiration behind his labels? 'The ram depicted on the label is a Merino ram, and the other elements such as the hills and windmill are typical Karoo elements. The three daffodils bring an element of colour to the logo and they signify the colour in my life, my wife and two daughters.' Van Wyk Family Vineyards is a highly anticipated endeavour - a specific interest in sourcing grapes from old vines, and when it comes to varieties such as Chenin Blanc and Cinsault; there are an abundance of old 'undiscovered' vineyards where the true potential of the grapes have not yet been realised. Besides being very selective about chosen vineyards and varieties, he aims to make honest and elegant wines that are expressive of nature, circumstance and his passion for the Cape’s heritage grape varieties.
