Montegray Syrah 2015

The Wine:

Robust, yet elegant. Luscious and full flavoured with spices and cinnamon while plum fruit sweetens the finish. A small portion of Cabernet was added for mid palate structure.

The bunches are crushed,destalked and the mash pumped to open-top oak fermenters. A portion of stalks are added back for extra structure. Regular punch downs ensures good colour and skin tannin extraction. Soon after fermentation, the wine is pressed.

Maturation takes place in older French Oak barrels in a mixture of 225l, 300l and 500l barrels.

The story of Montegray Vineyards began with the purchase of a small, very special Syrah vineyard in the Banhoek Valley. Rose Jordaan from Bartinney then began looking for other small batch, interesting varietals and special vineyards in the Winelands showcasing the regions diverse nature.
