Savage Red 2021

$65.00

Duncan Savage uses grapes from three Kuils River parcels, all located on granite soils, to produce what he calls the “stalwart red” of his range. Using 70% whole bunches and 30% submerged cap fermentation, it’s an intensely perfumed, grippy Syrah with white pepper and incense top notes and layers of fig, damson and blackberry fruit. Drink 2025-35. 96 points – Tim Atkin MW

 

The 2021 Red Blend includes 70% whole clusters, matured for 13 months in 500-liter barrels and then a year in foudres. The splendid bouquet displays brambly red plummy fruit, crushed stone, bay leaf, and Japanese green tea in the background. The medium-bodied palate has a touch of menthol on the entry and fine depth. It’s fresh with a slightly powdery texture and a saline, focused, surprisingly strict finish. Excellent. Drink 2025-2042. 94 points – Neal Martin, vinous.com
