Savage Wines Follow The Line 2015

Western Cape, South AfricaRetasted three years along, and wonderfully so. Duncan Savage (unofficial leader of the Zoo Cru) sources fruit from maritime vineyards, typically at altitude, for his low-interventionist wines. This is a blend of cinsault, grenache and syrah from Darling and Piekenierskloof, of which 20 percent goes whole bunch into large format French oak. Time has shaped this finer than ever, with any exuberance from youth shed, and emergent is scrubby herbs, raspberry, wild strawberry sliding along a slender palate. There's a lovely fine detailing here, with tannins that are purposefully pencilled like bamboo, and acidity which is nonchalantly bright. Best enjoyed with a light chill, and a few hours ahead of you.Tasted: 02 August 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 45.00 private wine shops Producer: Savage WinesDistributors: Lifford Wine and Spirits
