De Grendel is one of Cape Town's oldest wine farms and has a centuries-old history within the Graaff family. Located on ideal, high, sea-facing slopes overlooking Cape Town, it is the only vineyard in the country that is 350m above sea level and just seven kilometres from the sea.
The heady perfume of violets, plums, cigar box, mocha and nutmeg combines with Syrah's typical meaty, savouriness. Rich and seamless on the palate, with soft, fine grained tannins, this is a palate-caressing, fruit-forward Shiraz. Drink alongside glazed gammon or venison steaks. IWSC 2019 gold medal winner. Drink to 2025.
