COUNTRY: South Africa REGION:Stellenbosch
VARIETAL:Shiraz / syrah & blends
The Cirrus Syrah is borne from the collaboration between renowned wineries Silver Oak Cellars in Napa Valley and Rust en Vrede Estate in Stellenbosch. The wine was matured for 18 months in a combination of new French and American Oak 300 liter barrels and is made in a typical Rhone style. Deep ruby red in colour. Dark rich plum notes with a beautiful bouquet of floral jasmine, aided by an underlying mocha that creates a fantastic complex nose. The rich plum fruit and mocha from the nose are prominent on the palate. There are subtle floral notes that are well-integrated with the dark fruit flavours and subtle oak spice. This wine shows fantastic palate length ends with an elegant, well-structured and full finish.
