From the brand that brought you the groundbreaking Smiley & Silwervis, comes the latest wine to join this natural winemaking stable from the Swartland. ‘Terracura’ means to care for the earth, and the label is an understated departure from its contemporaries. This syrah is a blend of three vineyards from the Paardeberg, Kasteelburg and Malmesbury. It’s an elegant, pure example of a syrah, with some white pepper, plenty of cherries and red currant—and there’s an intriguing edge of grapefruit too.
WIN: Experience Ryan Mostert’s singular winemaking style by winning a three-pack containing: Terracura 2015 (R375) Silwervis Cinsault 2015 (R375), Smiley Red NV (R150). This hamper is valued at R900. To enter, simply complete the entry form below. Terms and conditions apply. Competition ends 30 June 2017.
