Francophile Syrah 2020, The Liberator
This wine is made by the well respected winery, De Morgenzon in Stellenbosch. De Morgenzon translates from Africaans to 'the Morning Sun', the name was granted to the farm by Governor Willem Adriaan van der Stel in 1699 due to its the altitude and the orientation - it is the first property in Stellenboschkloof to benefit from the early morning rays. Younger vine Syrah goes into this wine making it approachable and energetic, despite its easy drinking style the wine has great concentration, in part due to the fantastic granite soils found in the Bottelary Hills. Fruit and tannins are ripe, but the acidity remains fresh. Bramble and plum fruit are layered with hints of spice.
