La Vierge Collection Anthelia Syrah

The Anthelia Syrah from La Vierge is a masterclass in transforming the humble grape into something wondrous – an experience to be enjoyed at every opportunity. It is in itself and elegant, timeless expression of what a cool-climate Shiraz can be when given everything it desires – soft and fruity while simultaneously complex and full of spice notes. It has an incredibly lush palate which is wide on entry and full of rich, dark character.

Harvested separately by hand in the cool morning hours, the two blocks of Syrah were actually brought in during two separate harvests throughout a single month. The goal was a superior wine profile filled with nuance and complexity and the winemakers succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. The Anthelia Syrah is world-class on every level and available now.

La Vierge Anthelia Syrah – Hemel-en-Aarde, South Africa

The La Vierge Anthelia Syrah is a miracle of modern and traditional winemaking working hand-in-hand. The grapes were processed after a night in a cold storage tank before being fermented under tightly controlled temperatures until dry. The process finished in French Oak Barriques for 16 months ageing and maturation. Final blending took place 2 months before bottling so the Syrah could develop in bottle prior to release. Enjoy now or for the next 5 years.
