Syrah, ‘Tulbagh Estate’, Fable Mountain Vineyards
The Fable Mountain Vineyards Syrah represents the finest expression of Syrah from the Estate. The philosophy behind the wine is focused on achieving the highest expression of this very unique place and its Biodynamically-farmed site. At harvest time the grapes are very carefully and precisely monitored in the vineyard for optimal physiological ripeness and picked in tiny sections of 400kg each. The fermentation takes place in large open top barrels and starts spontaneously with a flora of indigenous yeasts from the vineyard. Around 30% whole clusters are added to the fermentation to give the wine added structure. The wine ages for 24 months in 33% new 500L oak barrels.
