The 2020 Porseleinberg is a remarkable wine: possibly one of the best Syrahs from anywhere in the world. Notes of small flowers and dark fruit dominate the nose, with amazing energy. The palate is silky yet structured, with notes of crushed pebbles alongside small berries and a hint of balsamic.

"We pick the vintage," says Callie Louw, whose 2020 Porseleinberg is the second lightest in alcohol he's ever made at 13.6%. Fermented with 100% whole bunches using the submerged cap technique that transformed the wine in 2018, this is another scented, seamless stunner from Callie Louw. Aged in large foudres and 5% concrete eggs, it's a spicy, sappy, hauntingly elegant Syrah from a brutal site, with kelp, rose petal and fynbos aromas, juicy bramble and red berry fruit, fine tannins and a wonderful sense of energy. 2024-32” 98 Points - Tim Atkin South Africa Special Report 2022
