Description

Stellenzicht Plum Pudding Hill Syrah is a single vineyard Syrah (Shiraz) from South Africa.

The Stellenzicht Estate is flanked by the Helderberg and Stellenbosch Mountain. Between Stellenbosch and the False Bay coast, lies an exceptional tract of land that benefits from terroirs eminently suited to the cultivation of the highest quality wine grapes. This jewel in the crown of the magnificent Stellenbosch wine-growing region is known as the Golden Triangle. At its core lies Stellenzicht.

The origins of Stellenzicht can be traced back to 1692  when it was part of a larger property granted to its first owner Barendt Hendrikse. The farm was bought by international banker and financier Hans-Joachim Schreiber in 1981. In 1999 he entered into a joint joint venture with Distillers Corporation which today forms part of Distell with whom he remains in partnership to to this day. The same partnership, called Lusan, also owns four other wine estates – Le Bonheur, Uitkyk, Alto and Neethlingshof.

The Plum Pudding Hill Vineyard was planted bewtween 1987 and 1990 and are situated on slopes facing west and north-west. The vineyards are located at an altitude of between 150m and 230m above sea level on soils of decomposed granite and Table Mountain sandstone. After the Syrah grapes are hand-harvested, they are destalked prior to crushing. They are then fermented in stainless steel tanks before being transferred to 300 litre oak barrels for malolactic fermentation. Stellenzicht Plum Pudding Hill Syrah is then aged in mainly new French oak barrels with a smaller proportion in Eastern European oak.

Tasting Notes

Stellenzicht Plum Pudding HIll Syrah is a dark ruby red colour. It has a wonderfully-fresh and complex nose with attractive ripe sweetness of red-fruit notes, plum puree, white pepper, violet tones and hints of oak. The palate is full-bodied, clean, lean and elegant with very well integrated oak ans supple tannins. There are more ripe plum flavours, cherries and hints of tobacco. A very refined and well defined wine.

Drink With

Stellenzicht Plum Pudding Hill is great on its own but it is also a great match for tangy spareribs, barbeque, oxtail, game, hearty stews and even chocolate. Also try with harder cheeses.
