Jordan The Prospector Syrah 2022

Jordan The Prospector Syrah 2022

R250,00

The gold rush of the 1800’s led to the discovery of tin in the gravels underlying the Syrah vineyards. The allure of wealth was fleeting as the prospector dug over the soils for the vigneron. Notes of peppered charcuterie, chipotle and red fruits are in abundance with a medium–bodied framework that lends itself to a variety of meat-based dishes and cooking techniques.
