Platter Red Wine of the year (2012 vintage) produced mostly from neighbouring Keermont vineyard.
Blueprint Syrah 2015
Medium deep, true red colour. Quite lean and restrained on the nose at first with a cold stone character, opening up with lovely pepper, cured meat, fynbos and a little Eucalypt hiding the dark berry fruit. Palate also a little shy at first with a slight reductive character, but it soon unpacks to show a complex array of flavours with crunchy tannins that keeps the wine fresh and appealing right to the end of a long finish. Expected best between 2018 and 2025. (Quite possibly the Blueprint with the best ageing potential yet).
Ideal with a rack of ribs with a little spice or slow roasted pork belly.
