Porseleinberg

Tim Atkin MW South Africa Special Report 2020 Overall Wine of The Year
"In the right hands, great sites produce great wines. Since its inception in 2010, Porseleinberg
has been one of the Cape's most exciting reds, but nothing quite prepared me for the
transcendent brilliance of this wine. Influenced by some time spent at Domaine Jamet in
Côte Rôtie - particularly their use of a submerged cap during fermentation - Callie Louw has
made a stunning Syrah, proving his skills as both a farmer and a winemaker. In 2018, the
style has shifted, away from power and grip to something more scented and refined. Focused,
nuanced and very delicately oaked, with raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, clove and white
pepper spice and textured tannins. Simply world class. 2023-35" 100 Points
