Bradgate Syrah Stellenbosch 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The history of Bradgate goes back well over 500 years. Lady Jane Grey, great-granddaughter of Henry VII, was born at Bradgate near Leicester in 1534, and at the age of 17, was proclaimed Queen of England. She ruled for only nine days before being imprisoned in the Tower of London. Alfred Jordan grew up playing around the ruins of Bradgate, always fascinated with stories of adventure in Africa. In 1889 at the age of 17, he set sail for South Africa. He settled in the winelands of the Western Cape and named his family estate Bradgate as a reminder of his early childhood. The Bradgate range, dedicated to Alfred Jordan and named after their family estate, combines the soft, fruity accessibility of the New World with the complexity of the classic wine styles, ensuring well-structured wines with a complex concentration of fruit and flavors. This Syrah is a dark mulberry colour. It has a complex flavor spectrum of violets, sweet ripe plums and wild scrub with nuances of crushed pepper and bay leaf. Maturation in oak adds a spicy oak smokiness, with a fruitcake finish.

Everything I like in a Syrah. Not tannic. Leather, dark fruit. Yum.
