2021 Savage Red, Cape Town, South Africa

Duncan Savage is one of the most exciting talents currently shaping the South African wine scene. His name is well-recognized for consistently producing exceptional wines in the Cape. Duncan has a reputation for dedicating himself a lot to his vineyards, always a great sign when you are looking for great wines! His commitment to viticulture is shown through his extreme vineyard plantings in the Karibib vineyard in southern Stellenbosch. Here, he has invested substantially in planting what he anticipates to be a top-quality Syrah vineyard, with the potential to yield grapes of unprecedented quality in Stellenbosch.

Why do we like it?

The Savage Red 2021 is coming from a small 0.38-hectare organic vineyard on sandy gravel soil with maritime influence and plenty of wind. A pure Syrah which exemplifies the power and richness that characterize Duncan’s wines. This flagship red undergoes extended bottle aging, allowing its complexity to shine. The wine presents an aromatic profile with expressive notes of lavender, ripe red plum, blackberry and rosemary/thyme nuances. The palate is broad and elegantly textured, displaying sweet black fruits, meaty complexity, and a mineral finish.
