Askerne “Tere” Syrah 2019
The fruit for this wine is grown on the stony sandy soil of our lower terrace. It was harvested on 4 April 2019. The fruit was cold soaked for around 6 days prior to fermentation. The wine was then aged in French oak barrels for 10 months, 33 % new.

Dark red, purple hues. Amazing dark berry fruit in the raspberry black currant spectrum. The spice notes of Syrah are to the fore in this wine with a white pepper and Chinese five spice. As is our style, the fruit was aged in oak to accentuate the savoury notes and introduce aromas of vanilla and toast.
The palate is especially vibrant with a line of acidity knitting the fleshiness and structural components together. Excellent concentration and vibrancy with a long finish.
