For Lammershoek Winery 2010 was a very cool growing season dominated by high rainfall in late October. It was an extremely good grape growing year and acids were naturally very high because of the cool temperatures leading up to harvest.
The wine itself has a bright but funky nose with dark cherries, sloe, fresh date and raisin that is beautifully defined. The palate is smooth and sensual on the entry with bewitching purity and precision. It is not a powerful Syrah, but one that walks a tightrope so gracefully and so naturally towards its brilliantly poised finish.
