Old Road Wine Company 12 Mile Syrah 2017
Rated 94 Points by The Wine Advocate - This is a great example of South African Syrah, ripe and full flavoured.
An intense wine with layered ripe berries, natural spice and exceptional structure. It is characterised by an excellent balance between bright, juicy fruit and integrated, spicy oak, with a coated acidity and earthy minerality. This makes for excellent structure, with a finish that is moreish and refreshing.
The Old Road Wine Co tells the story of special old vines grown in rugged corners of the Franschhoek wine country. Rain or shine, the postman of yesteryear would travel the 12 miles daily to deliver our post. A feat of perseverance akin to the vines' endurance through time and elements.
