Description for The Prospector Syrah 2014 ...
The parcels of fruit for the Jordan Estate The Prospector Syrah were sourced from west facing estate grown vines; with an average age of 26 years old, overlooking Cape Town and Table Mountain. The Prospector Syrah was introduced by wine makers Gary and Kathy Jordan in acknowledgment of the massive public support to save the Cape Winelands from potential Mine Prospectors.
Tasting Note from Fairley's Wines ...
The Jordan Estate Syrah appears almost black with intense black fruit and spice aromas. The palate is medium bodied with velvety soft tannins, interwoven with rich blackberry and dried cherry fruit, white pepper and spice, subtle oak finishing soft and long with hints of dark chocolate and even more spiced fruit. The Prospector Syrah should be allowed to breathe and will continue to get even better with age 5-8 years. Best served with Ribeye and even game.
