2021 Remhoogte 'Free to Be' Syrah
Tasting Notes: This is a deliciously fresh and elegant wine with aromas of blackcurrants, cloves, and violet. Vibrant fruit flavors on the palate are accompanied by a beautifully coated acidity and supple tannins.
Remhoogte’s Free to Be Red Blend was created as a way for winemaker Chris Boustred to experiment. These small batch wines, give them the freedom “to push their philosophy of minimal intervention to the extreme”. Each vintage is different in both blend and expression. The 2021 Vintage is a carbonic style Syrah. The grapes are fermented as whole bunches in concrete tanks and matured in the tank for 12 months.
Since 1994, Remhoogte has been crafting premium wines in the esteemed Stellenbosch region of South Africa. With a similar climate and soil to Bordeaux, the region produces exceptionally complex wines. Remhoogte Wine Estate produces amazing small-batch values from some of South Africa’s best grapes. The estate focuses on minimal intervention, allowing the terroir and the grapes to tell their own story. All of Remhoogte’s wines are made using sustainable practices and are unfined and unfiltered (i.e., vegan!).
