Metzer Family Shiraz 2022
100% Syrah. The wine is an assemblage of two unique parcels situated high up on the Helderberg West Peak; the highest of which is at 300 metres above sea level.
The wine shows pronounced floral notes backed up by white pepper, lilies and violets as well as a hint of olive. 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 bunch portion add a chalky texture while at the same time maintaining freshness.
