Stark-Condé Three Pines Syrah 2016 / 17
(R2,699.99 for 6 x 750ml)
The 2016 vintge was a dry year which resulted in intensely aromatic wines with velvety tannin structure. On our Three Pines Syrah we always focus on the texture — the “mouthfeel” — and the fine balance between power and elegance. It is not an “in your face” style: it shows pretty floral notes with slight pepperiness and the palate is smooth and polished with a long elegant finish — what one critic described as “having the texture of crushed violets”.

From our well-known Three Pines vineyard, just above the Cabernet. The grapes were hand-harvested and hand-sorted and fermented in open tanks with hand-punchdowns throughout. Matured for 20 months in small French oak, 40% new. An elegant style of Syrah with a fine mouthfeel that one critic described as having “the texture of crushed violets.” This was an extremely small vintage: only 3,245 bottles were produced.
