This wine was hand-made by Chase Carhartt, a California native, and Nathalia & Hannes Storm, of Storm Wines, located in the Western Cape of South Africa. This Syrah hails from the cool, maritime climate of the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, supported by low-vigor, stony, clay-rich Bokkeveld shale soils.
This medium bodied, ruby colored Syrah has aromas of black pepper, dark berry, coffee bean, and dried lavender undertones. The palate highlights flavors of peppered meat, tart blackberry, dried herbs, and cocoa powder.
Pair with a peppered steak or burger!
