James Halliday, 2019 Wine Companion. 97pts for 2016 Bekkers Syrah Grenache. “An exercise in complexity from start to finish in flavour, texture and structure.”
A 69/31% blend from five vineyards fermented and matured separately, whole berries and 20% whole bunches open-fermented with gentle plunging, matured in used French oak before blending. An exercise in complexity from start to finish in flavour, texture and structure. This has a European touch to the way intensity and elegance dance a pas de deux. It changes shape once again with a magical burst of flavour than lingers forever.
