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.
100% Syrah grapes which are sourced from two vineyards, one in Stellenbosch and the other in Swartland. Both sites are grown on decomposed granite soils, Stellenbosch vines are trellised and Swartland component is typically dry-armed bush vines. Pronounced red and black fruit, rose, lilies, pelargonium and white pepper on the nose, while the palate shows bold fruit expression, bright acidity and super-fine tannins.
