Description

95 points Wine Advocate
"Beginning with a floral grip, the 2019 Iron Syrah offers a seductive nose filled with red flowers, wild raspberry and dusty cherry as elegant spice tones waft from the glass. Medium to full-bodied, the wine has a fine mineral tension and firm, rocky tannins that lift the mid-palate. As the tannins loosen, the wine uncoils in the mouth, leading to a food-friendly and delightfully fragranced finish. This was made with 100% whole-cluster Syrah, and the wine rested for one year in 50% new French oak. It’s delicious! 3,300 bottles produced."

95 points Wine Spectator
"A beautiful, elegant red, with milled white pepper and fresh rosemary notes, which are abundantly fragrant on the nose but more subdued on the palate, plus pure accents of ripe black raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, orange peel and dark chocolate. Reveals fine, silky tannins, which emerge to firm the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2033. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 109 cases made, 5 cases imported."

Vinous Reverie Notes
The Iron Syrah vineyard, on the rolling hills outside of Malmesbury, has always been very important in creating a Syrah with incredible mid-palate, deep fragrance and round tannins, due to the ancient, rich, gravelly Koffieklip soils they are grown on.  The dry land bush vines on this exposed site are the earliest ripening of all of our Syrahs and gives us insight to the quality of the vintage ahead. Tasting NotesBrimming with flavors of wild blueberry and dark plum that lead, into hints of tomato leaf, aromatic allspice and a floral complexity.  The full-bodied meatiness of this wine, has a freshness and long finish that intertwines with its fine grain tannins.
