Van Loggerenberg ‘Graft’ Syrah 2022


Christian Eedes, Winemag:
“Super-complex aromatics of red and black berries, potpourri, dried herbs and white pepper. The palate is medium bodied with fresh acidity and powdery tannins. As with many wines from 2022, this wine doesn’t have the same fruit density as the previous vintage and is already quite open – hugely pleasurable all the same. 95/100.”

100% Syrah- W.O Polkadraai Hills
Soil: Granite rich soils

In the vineyards:
The Syrah vineyard used to produce this wine is planted on Karibib Farm and farmed by Jozua Joubert. The vineyard is planted on a steep south facing slope of the Polkadraai Hills at an elevation of approximately 290m.

In the cellar:
The fruit was 100% whole bunch fermented and left to start fermenting naturally with one punch down per day performed. After pressing, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in barrel and Italian concrete. The different components were blended together after 10 months of ageing and bottled right after. No enzymes or commercial yeast was used in making the wines.

Label story:
The name has several meanings to me. It is not only a reminder of some sage advice from my grandfather who always told me that if you want to make a success of something you need to put in the hard yards and graft (symbolized by the man working in the top left hand corner) but also symbolizes how two individual parts can be grafted together to form a stronger and more meaningful whole as shown by the vines being grafted together. The honeybee and finch are both very hardworking and despite not always knowing if what they are doing will work still graft and get it done. The stamp symbolizes our South African heritage.
