Mon Vieux 'Sheer'

Syrah-Tannat, 2011

South Africa Red

Stellenbosch 75cl

The Syrah comes from vines planted on granite, a small amount of deep Tannat from a neighbouring vineyard is added. Wild yeast fermented and bottled unfined. Deep in colour, earthy, meaty nose with black cherry and plum, touch of roasted meat.
It's bright on the palate with dense red and black fruits and a nice creamy texture, it's got a touch of South African funk, but is adding a touch of complexity rather than dominating. It's still a very distinctive smoky meaty red, with hints of coffee and spice- I quite like it, but it needs robust food and I would opt for drinking it over the next couple of years before the funky, smoky flavours take over.
