Cape Winemakers Guild

De Trafford Syrah 2009

The grapes are from a single clone 470 from a new section planted in 2002 on our Mont Fleur vineyard 400 metres above sea level. Steep, strong granite based soils on small terraces on narrow 1.8 metre wide rows and a high vine density ensuring a maximum 1.2kg/vine. A single 225 litre new French oak barrel (Boutes Grand Reserve) was selected and the wine matured in it for nearly 3 years before being bottled unfiltered with no fining. Tasting Notes: The fruit of this exceptional vintage and vineyard is cloaked in a fine new oak wrapping that will unfold in time to showcase the inherent beauty. Almost a Cabernet-like structure on the palate.
