Scions of Sinai Swangsang Syrah 2021


Syrah grown on decomposed granite, which lowers the wines overall pH, heightens freshness and accentuates perfume. Incredible Syrah here, with a taste not dissimilar to Eden valley Shiraz, but with a coolness and silken drive tensioned with such an incredible abundance of flavour. Baking spices, blueberry, violet, bitumen, dark cherry, cranberry and sweet raspberry. Pure and translucent palate, soft and evenly flowing, the tannins long, fine, balanced and interwoven. Concentrated, poised and immensely powerful, but so graceful, enticing and effortless. One of our favourite wines of 2023. Waters Wine Co


The 2021 Swanesang includes 85% stem addition, higher than the 2019, with 11 months on the lees. It was the first vintage where Bredell had to do some suckering. I had to wait two or three minutes because of the reduction, but wow, it is worth the wait. It unfurls with exquisite red fruit, a hint of blueberry, pressed violet and light garrigues scent. There is something sensual about the aromatics here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, pure black and red fruit, an insistent grip with a complex white pepper and thyme infused finish. You will find it difficult to find a more soulful and importantly delicious Syrah from the Cape. 97 Points, Neal Martin MW (Vinous)
