De Trafford Glenrosa Syrah 2021

100% Syrah
Wine of Origin Stellenbosch

  • A tiny pocket of stony Glenrosa soil in the middle of our Elevation 393 vineyard was identified and vinified separately to produce only one and a half barrels.           
  • Just one 225 litre barrel was bottled for this auction wine.  
  • Only the fourth Syrah I’ve selected for the auction following Syrah 1999, 2009 and Sijnn Syrah 2011.
  • 2021 is possibly the best vintage I’ve had the privilege of working with.

Tasting Notes: Bright, medium-deep red colour. Pronounced spiciness and red berry fruit on the nose. Fine red fruit and spices on the palate with a unique creamy texture and long finish.

Ready for drinking from 2024 to 2033.

Winemaker: David Trafford
