The Dalmatian Stellenbosch Syrah 2018
Dark ruby in colour, a subtle nose of dark fruits (cherries, blackcurrants and loganberries) with a whiff of violets. Luscious blackberry notes and a hint of spice on the palate supported by subtle French oak integration – well rounded, finely balanced, smooth tannin structure and a long finish.
This wine is called The Dalmatian on account of the minimal portions of the Viognier cultivar used in the blend, either co-fermented, or in topping barrels, depending on the vintage, as the Viognier grape is reported as having its origins from the Dalmatian coast (current day Croatia).
