    2021 Savage Proprietary Red (Western Cape, SA) 5R

    5R

    Medium-bodied wines with more structure and a mouth-feel similar to whole milk

    2021 Savage Proprietary Red (Western Cape, SA) 5R

    This magnificent aroma reveals notes of ripe, brambly red plum fruit intertwined with crushed stone, hints of bay leaf, and a subtle presence of Japanese green tea. On the medium-bodied palate, a touch of menthol greets you initially, followed by impressive depth. The wine maintains a fresh character, with a delicate, slightly powdery texture leading to a focused, saline finish that exhibits unexpected austerity.

    About The Varietal

    Syrah

    Shiraz and Syrah are interchangeable names for the same dark-skinned grape variety when viewed in terms of DNA. Originating in the Rhône Valley, this grape dominates plantings in the northern section of the valley. The name Shiraz is commonly used in Australia and certain regions of the New World, particularly those with warmer climates. The stylistic differences between Shiraz and Syrah wines are often distinct, contributing to the enduring dual identities of this grape variety.
