2020 Savage 'The Girl Next Door' Syrah
There are wines that are special because they are incredibly rare and there a wines that are special because they are of outstanding quality - the Girl Next Door is both. The Syrah is sourced from a tiny 0.38 hectare wind-swept vineyard next door to Duncan’s house by the beach in Fishhoek (hence the name). Originally planted only for ornamental value, Duncan (owner) would pass them on the way to the surf and naturally wondered what kind of wine these poor vines would create. The answer is one of the most unique, intense expressions of Syrah in the Western Cape.
Savoury and perfumed, the palate texture is incredibly elegant and fine boned, showing light touch winemaking, silky soft dry powdery tannins and a smooth, cool, classical finish revealing blackberry fruits, black peppercorns and a gentle maritime salinity. A very fine, supple, complete expression of Syrah. Drink now and over the next 8 to 10+ years.
