Syrah 2010

Seven Springs Syrah 2010 technical Description
This Syrah, produced in our vineyard’s cool ocean influenced climate, is refined, delightfully complex and truly fragrant. Produced from very young vines, the wine was aged for 12 months in second and third year French oak barrels. This ensures the oak influences are understated and allow the opulent dark cherry and red berry flavours to dominate, along with hints of pepper and spice. On the palate it is rich and textured.

Seven Springs, Syrah 2010
Overberg (South Africa) Red (Screwcap) 14% ABV
Seven Springs burst onto the scene with an excellent Sauvignon Blanc last year, but this Syrah from young vines planted in the Overberg region is new. The nose is opulently rich and crammed with plum and red berry fruit. Ageing in older French barrels adding some spice and delicate smokiness, with a hint of  crisply-grilled bacon fat. On the palate it is fresh and vibrant, with real depth but bounding youthfullness and ocean-influenced clarity. 90/100
TweetCritique: The instantaneously recognisable aroma of black cherries was amazing, fairly young for a Syrah no doubt but the almost cherry menthol flavour was sublime, the lingering cherry aftertaste testament to a fine wine. The Seven Springs wine collection I tasted belied their maturity. Each wine held a surprise of its own. The construction of the wine is bold and creative and in my opinion Seven Springs wine is bound to grow even further in its popularity.

Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Description
Aromas of apples and peaches with fresh lime on the palate ending with a crisp fruit acidity. This is what UK wine writer Jamie Goode had to say about the wine  –  ”Pure aromatics with some rich pear and peach notes as well as citrus freshness”  –   “a sophisticated wine of real quality”
