Syrah - The Prospector - Jordan Estate - Stellenbosch - South Africa
Delicious Rhône-style scrub & pepper. Very reticent, laid-back aromas of cherry, plum and spices. Soft, plummy and sweet; a distinctly polite style of Syrah with moderate complexity.
It has a delightful, pure, quite floral bouquet that expresses the variety with style. Touches of wilted violet petal infusing the cassis and boysenberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe and supple tannins. The acidity is well judged and the finish very harmonious, with touches of black cherry and cassis that are sylph-like, as they glide across the palate
