Savage Red 2018

£28.00 GBP

Duncan Savage, previously the winemaker at Cape Point Vineyards, introduced his own label in 2011 with a goal to produce rock-solid, classic and elegant wines. Through his time at Cape Point, Duncan grew to understand maritime vineyards, which led him to source grapes for Savage wines from maritime and high altitude sites around the Western Cape. 

2018 is 100% Syrah, grown on granite soil in Stellenbosch. The fruit is farmed organically, the wine is aged for 13 months in french oak, then a further 9 months in big conical foudres. It is deep with concentrated complex fruit flavours, and a back ground granitic acidity. It is intense balanced and long.
