South Africa Driefontein Syrah 2019 750ml
• Introduction 簡介
The name of this range comes from the early days of settlement in the Cape. The VOC (Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie) prohibited farmers from trading with anyone other than the ‘Compagnie’, but this lead to big unhappiness. Therefore, when the ‘vrijburgers’ and local tribesmen wanted to do business, they had to go to a secluded area in the mountain-range to trade without interference. This corner was where Stellenbosch Mountain and Helderberg ‘join’ and so it became known as ‘Konkelberg’.
• Terroir 風土
Rooted in the oldest viticulture soil in the world, it is made up of decomposed granite on the lower slopes of the Helderberg Mountain. This vineyard enjoyed the refreshingly cool breezes from False Bay (Atlantic Ocean) during the day and cool night air flowing down the mountain, resulting in even ripening of the berries and good natural acidity. The macro climate is maritime, with cold wet winters and dry, warm summers.
Driefontein Syrah 2019 釀造過程：
The two-hectare single vineyard vines are meticulously cared for by hand to ensure maximum quality. Organic and biodynamic practices are employed, which includes not using any pesticides, herbicides or chemical sprays. In addition, farm produced compost, teas and biodynamic preparations are employed. The fruit was hand-picked in small lug boxes and the crop was reduced to ensure that only the perfect grapes were used for this wine.
Biodynamic practices were also followed in the cellar. In the winery, the grapes were sorted twice – firstly as whole bunches and then as berries to ensure that only the best grapes reach the fermentation tank. Aged in 20% new French Oak barrels, this wine will continue to reward if carefully cellared for 5 – 8 years.On the nose, the wine shows cinnamon, black cherries, elegant spice and charcuterie. Well-rounded tannins make for a wine which is accessible now, but with enough structure and balance to age and reward well in years to come. Serious, smoky, meaty and compact.
地窖也遵循生物動力實踐。在釀酒廠，葡萄被分選兩次 - 首先是整串葡萄，然後是漿果，以確保只有最好的葡萄才能到達發酵罐。在 20% 的新法國橡木桶中陳釀，如果精心窖藏 5 至 8 年，這款酒將繼續獲得回報。這款酒在鼻子上散發出肉桂、黑櫻桃、優雅的香料和熟食的味道。圓潤的單寧造就了一款現在可以買到的葡萄酒，但具有足夠的結構和平衡，可以陳年並在未來幾年獲得良好的回報。嚴肅，煙熏，多肉和緊湊。
