“Beeste” is the Afrikaans word for cattle, and this Syrah hails from a farm high on Swartland’s Kasteelberg mountain, sharing the steep, stony slopes with Africa’s famously skinny Nguni cattle. And this is the point of this wine – it’s about the bones of the beast, not the flesh. There’s no jam and no heft – its skinny, structured stuff with breadth, texture and a charmingly rustic gait. 100% naturally fermented partially in old wooden barrels, its cerebral Syrah to chew over again and again.

 

Mineral, fine and uplifting. 50% whole berry, 50% whole bunch, the bright acidity and fine tannins lift the ripe Syrah fruit to a freshness and vitality seldom found in Swartland. The slatey soils give further minerality to the palate which finishes long, with vivid fruit. This is another superb wine from Donovan Rall. Enjoy to 2022.
