6 X Luddite, Shiraz, Western Cape, South Africa, 2015
|Grapes||Syrah / Shiraz|
This is one of the finest expressions of natural wine making we’ve seen and is testament to the merits of the minimal intervention method movement. This is a BIG bombastic wine full of marinated dark fruit character and a leathery component rarely found in New World expressions of Syrah, as it’s called in its indigenous home – the Rhone Valley.
But don’t just take our word for it, read what some the most respected minds in wine have to say about it below:
Jancis Robinson: ‘this wine is a triumph of flavour over alcohol – no added water here – with real backbone as well as tons of spicy fruit. More leathery than the average New World Syrah but nothing like a northern RhÃ´ne wine.’
Decanter – Four Stars out of Five: ‘Bags of ripe, fleshy, generous fruit on the nose – juicy and fresh. Mouthwatering. Doesn’t disappoint on the palate, offering ripe blackberry, cherry fruit, a lovely weight and a lingering finish.’
