Vinen laves nu på den meget lille vingård på Porselein Mountain. Der anvendes vildgær og men vinificerer ikke i nye, franske egetræsfade (barriques), men kun i de banebrydende nye æggeformede cementtanke og meget store (2500 liter) egefade, for at bevare fokus på den unikke frugt fra de vindomsuste marker. Resultatet er en meget mørkerød vin, en stor bouquet af sort, moden frugt med masser af krydderi, en kopleks, knitrende sort Syrah med stor dybde og intensitet. Det er svært ikke at tænke Côte- Rôtie, når man smager denne vin

En stor vin, hvor man utvivlsomt tænker Côte-Rôtie. Sorte bærnoter, peber og urter i smagen. Flot balanceret og meget kølig i stilen. Kompleks med en meget lang afslutning.
A really perfumed nose of violets, jasmine and incense. Nutmeg, cloves, Chinese spices, dark licorice and dark-chocolate shavings to follow. Full body, grippy and grainy tannins, vibrant acid drive and a long, chewy finish. A granite and savory aftertaste. Really well done. Drink now or hold.
The flagship cuvée from winemaker Marc Kent, the brilliant 2015 Syrah Porseleinberg is 100% Syrah brought up in foudre and demi-muids. Deep ruby/purple-colored with a Cornas-like style in its black cherry, currants, scorched earth, and huge mineral-laced bouquet, it's medium-bodied, fresh, focused, and chiseled on the palate, with plenty of tannin and acidity. It's going to benefit from 2-4 years of cellaring and keep for a decade or more after that.
The 2015 Syrah begins with with a black core of fruit with a grippy and rigid minerality on the nose. The palate is bone-dry with a taught mineral-driven expression that moves to a grippy tannic nature that lingers long on the finish with black spice and plum skin, and black tea. The body is full and brooding confirming the tannins are built for years to come. In youth, this acts like a young Barolo, as it can be unforgiving upon release. I am very interested to see these wines again in the year 2030. Only 800 cases were produced. 2019-2035.
Sometimes you have to remind yourself how recently this amazing site was planted, making its first wine in 2011. But what a wine this is. If it grown in the Rhône, it would sell for twice the price or more. It's the Cornas of the Cape: compact, savoury and deeply coloured, with layers of dark, inky fruit, spicy tannins and a combination of freshnes and understated power. 2020-32.
The 2015 Porseleinberg Syrah contains whole-bunch fruit matured in 90% foudres and 10% concrete eggs. It has a very well defined bouquet of brambly black fruit and white pepper, and an engaging sense of coolness pervades these aromatics. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin and almost Northern Rhône in style, offering ample freshness yet at the same time a brooding intensity. There is quality and refinement here from start to finish. A superb Syrah from winemaker Callie Louw. but one I feel needs two or three years in bottle. Want serious, world class South African wine? Get in line here. 2020 - 2038 .
