Lismore Syrah, Greyton, South Africa 2015

"This is one of the best Syrahs I have encountered from South Africa." - Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate (on the 2014 vintage)

There's a serene beauty to the landscape and the vineyards at Lismore estate that somehow translates into the wines, particularly this extraordinary Syrah, which echoes not only the fragrant, lifted Syrahs of the northern Rhone, but also brings some of the local flora into its fold, notably the fynbos and roibos bushes that grow nearby. It's a stunning rendition of the Syrah grape!

Jancis Robinson.com: "Light, fragrant, perfumed, really sophisticated and graceful, yet with a superb fruity quality that has enviable clarity and purity - like just-picked red bramble fruit. Excellent!" 17.5 points

The Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Syrah includes 50% Elgin fruit and 50% from Samantha O'Keefe's estate, including 25% whole bunch, which is less than the 2014. It has a very sensual bouquet with dark cherries, iodine and crushed violets that blossom in the glass. There is lovely purity here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, very precise and focused, here a mixture of red and black fruit with a hint of pain d'epices on the structured finish. This is probably Samantha's best release in 2015 and it comes highly recommended." 93 points
