Joostenberg Estate ‘Klippe Kou’ Syrah 2019

R195.00

The best Syrah vines on Joostenberg are planted in the rockiest soils hence the name “Klippe Kou”, which translated from Afrikaans means “chewing rocks” (literally) or “enduring hardship” (figuratively). Although the vines struggle in the first few years after planting, once the roots are well established these rocky soils produce intensely flavoured grapes and characterful wine.

Grapes were hand-picked, 70% were destemmed and the remainder left as whole clusters. Natural fermentation occurred in small, open fermenters. 16 months maturation in seasoned 500L barrels.

Christian Eedes: “Red and black berries, smoked meat, pepper and a hint of vanilla on the nose. The palate is medium bodied with a good core of fruit, bright acidity and firm yet fine tannins. 91/100”

Tyrrel & Anette Myburgh Tyrrel and Anette are the 5th generation of Myburghs on the Joostenberg farm in Paarl. They strongly believe in the fundamental importance of origin. This manifests itself in the vineyards by farming organically and often without irrigation. The winemaking philosophy avoids obtrusion as much as they deem is possible without compromising quality.
