Savage Girl Next Door Syrah 2021 750ml
Duncan Savage is a very talented winemaker who’s reputation was made at Cape Point where he has been making very serious wines for years. ‘Savage’ is his own venture where he discovers fascinating plots of great fruit and makes blends, each year slightly different, depending what he finds and cannot resist.
The star of another outstanding line-up from Duncan Savage. There are wines that are special because they are incredibly rare and there a wines that are special because they are of outstanding quality – Savage the Girl Next Door is both. The Syrah is sourced from a tiny 0.38 hectare wind-swept vineyard next door to Duncan’s house by the beach in Fishhoek (hence the name). Originally planted only for ornamental value, Duncan would pass them on the way to the surf and naturally wondered what kind of wine these poor vines would create.
