Op Die Berg Syrah 2022

R 330.00

Elegant and complex, full-bodied, fragrant and fresh – the De Grendel Op die Berg Syrah is a distinctive wine grown in one of South Africa’s highest, and coldest, winemaking districts.

The grapes from the Op Die Berg vineyards are delivered to the De Grendel cellar in Durbanville where they are destemmed before crushing to reduce tannic influence and undergo aerated pump overs in closed tanks to preserve freshness, while extended skin contact develops full body and the wine’s deep, brilliant colour.

Offering superb drinking pleasure on release, the wine will reward careful cellaring for up to 8 to 10 years.

A complex Shiraz filled with intense red fruit, peppery Fynbos and Mediterranean spices such as black pepper, marjoram and rosemary on the nose. Oak showing hints of sweet spice and vanilla. Red berries follow through on the palate and finish off with a smooth lingering sensation.

High on the Witzenberg Mountain range in Ceres, at an altitude of 1,000 meters above sea level, this unique ‘appellation’ exhibits South Africa’s only truly continental climate with winter temperatures frequently dropping below freezing. The cool nighttime temperature and warmer day time temperature ensured wines with great concentration in 2022, the compact bunches and small berries also added to that. The cooler weather enabled producers to harvest their grapes at exactly the right time, and we are especially excited about good colour extraction, low pH levels, and high natural acidity, which all point to exceptional quality wines. These growing conditions ensure that the new 2022 Op Die Berg Syrah will age remarkably well over the next few years.
Wine was made in a open fermenter with half whole clusters and half destalked, using the pneumatic punch down method. Malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks. Next, the wine was transferred to 2nd, 3d and 4th fill French Oak barrels for 12 months' maturation prior to blending and bottling.
