Metzer Family Shiraz 2017
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 pronounced floral notes backed up by white pepper, lilies and violets as well as a hint of leather. Notes of dried flowers are folded into the background. The palate is powerful yet graceful featuring ripe fruit complemented 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.
