Dry on the palate with nice complexity.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and cherries.

This is a tasty red blend from South Africa. Soft and smooth with nice complexity. Nicely balanced with a soft mouthfeel.

Needed 4 hours to open up properly, so be patient.

14% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Porseleinberg

Swartland Syrah 2020

Deep purple, the 2018 Porseleinberg Syrah reveals alluring aromas of dark plum, black cherry, blackberry, black pepper, dried lavender wood smoke and even some rose water. On the palate, this full-bodied South African Syrah offers great tension and flavor complexity, adding notes of ripe strawberry, iodine and earth. The long, lingering finish confirm an outstanding wine. 100% whole bunch fermentation, aged for 12 months in large oak barrels and a small portion in concrete eggs. Drink now until 2040. — 2 years ago

Treinspoor Swartland Tinta Barocca 2022

Interesting wine. Very sweet almost jammy sensation at first, reminding me of a Zinfandel, but it it set my palate to the point that it became more balanced with darker dryer undernotes. It was very balanced and focused. Good acidity and fine integrated tannins, so we kept drinking it and we’re actually sad when it was all gone. — 9 months ago
