Intensely aromatic, with notes of orange-peel, leather, cigar tobacco, black liquorice and dark-plummy fruit. The Tormentoso Syrah & Mourvèdre is medium to full bodied with layers of black fruit and leather notes. It finishes with typical black wine-gum flavours, rounded out by soft, juicy tannins. This wonderfully spicy wine is an excellent accompaniment to South African "braai" (barbecued meat and vegetables), roast beef and beefsteak, venison and rich, cheesy lasagne.
The intense flavour of the grapes comes from dry-farmed, trellised vineyards that grow in deep, pebbly Malmesbury shale soils. The wine is barrel matured for 12 months in 225- and 300-litre oak barrels (with one-third new barrels) before blending. We've found that a little Mourvèdre blended into the Syrah is the perfect match; the dark fruit and liquorice spice of the Syrah marries well with the complexity of the Mourvèdre.
