Metzer Family Shiraz 2016
100% Syrah. A single-vineyard wine from a unique Helderberg parcel. The site unusually features three different soil types within a single block.
The wine shows musky floral notes backed up by aromas of white fennel, blueberry and violets as well as a hint of vanilla pod. Notes of dried flowers are folded into the background. The palate is powerful yet graceful featuring ripe fruit com- plemented by savoury notes which keeps the wine balanced. The stems from the whole bunches add a chalky texture while at the same time maintaining freshness.
