Scions of Sinai ‘Swanesang’ Syrah 2021


WO Stellenbosch

100% Syrah. One of the last bush vine Syrah vineyards near the Helderberg. This 0.7 Ha vineyard is planted to teh SH1A clone. 80% whole bunch fermented with submerged caps – giving less access to oxygen and an overall more gentle process than normal. Think infusion rather than extraction. Aged in old French oak for 12 months.

Exceptional, evocative and elegant. Cool site Stellenbosch Syrah on granite; how wonderful!

Christian Eedes (Winemag): 96/100

Bernhard Bredell grew up in a wine farming family, on their (previously owned) farm, Helderzicht, in the Lower Helderberg region of Stellenbosch. The Bredells had been farming wine here for over 160 years – 7 generations – and had essentially been responsible for developing the region. It started with Peter Bredell’s arrival in the 1850’s and passed down to his descendants, a.k.a. “Scions”.

Scions of Sinai Wines mainly focuses on curating these uniquely located vineyards of the Lower Helderberg region (southeast of Stellenbosch) around a granite hill colloquially known as “Sinai Hill” – pure wines from a few specially selected dry farmed bushvine vineyards on decomposed granite. Bernard favours a chemical-free approach in the vineyards and the winery.

Bernhard Bredell was named Young Winemaker of the Year in the Tim Atkin South Africa Special Report 2019.
