Produced only in exceptional vintages, the Ouberg "Old Mountain" Syrah is the quintessence of what the extreme region of the Sutherland-Karoo has to showcase. Mount Sutherland has not only the highest vineyards in South Africa, 1500m above sea level, but it is also in the coldest wine growing region in South Africa. This harsh environment results in low yielding, high quality & concentrated grapes. Just 492 bottles of this spectacular wine were produced. So what can you expect from this rare and unique wine? Black cherries, black currant, violet along with savoury hints of olive, white pepper and smokiness. Bold yet precise, with fine grained tannins.
