Suidooster Shiraz 2021

R200.00 / Bottle
Perched high in Bottelary, these vineyards have one of the best views of Table Mountain. Here, the prevailing south-easter or suidooster wind gusting off False Bay is fierce and unrelenting. As it carves its way around the granitic outcrops between the vines it delivers small berries, shaping a Syrah with deep concentration and refinement.
