2019 Porseleinberg Syrah
The 2019 Porseleinberg has a brilliant nose, as I would expect, presenting an exquisitely defined mixture of red and black fruit with hints of honey and orange blossom, pressed iris petals and incense. The medium-bodied, harmonious palate offers fine-grained tannins and a judicious touch of white pepper and clove. Very Rhône-like in style, it reminds me of a Jamet Côte-Rôtie tasted the previous month. Absolute class from Callie Louw, and better than the 2018 in my opinion. Drink 2025 - 2050.
Neal Martin - Antonio Galloni's Vinous (July 2021)
Vibrant, peppery nose of blackcurrants, black pepper, five spice, grilled herbs, bay leaves and chili chocolate. It’s medium-to full-bodied with bright acidity and tight-grained tannins. Excellent flavor concentration here with a long, savory and juicy finish. 100% syrah. Sustainable. Drink now or hold.
