Ironstone Stellenbosch Syrah 2019

Ironstone Stellenbosch Syrah 2019
Ironstone Stellenbosch Syrah 2019
Bright, clear dark inky colour - notes of dark forest fruits, dark cherry and a hint of spice on the nose followed by a crystalline palate of tightly packed, ripe, damson, loganberry and blackberry. A good acidity on the palate provides this wine with a good backbone to age. It is finely balanced with soft tannins and will benefit from maturing in correct cellaring conditions for 5-8 years.

Ironstone is common place in the Cape, and often referred to as Koffie-klip by Afrikaans speakers, or it’s anatomical name ‘Ferricrete’. Reddish brown in colour it belies a depth and substance to the wine that adds a certain power of flavour.
