It’s skinny, structured stuff with breadth, texture and a charmingly rustic gait. Mineral, fine and uplifting this vintage is another bony Beeste. 50% whole berry, 50% whole bunch, once again it is the bright acidity and fine tannins in the stems that lift the ripe Syrah fruit to a freshness and vitality seldom found in Swartland. The mean, slatey soils give further minerality to the palate which finishes long, broad and bright. Such a delight.
