Leeuwenkil, Heritage Syrah, Swartland 2012

18.5(95) Leeuwinkuil is a comparatively recent label (though the fruit from these vineyards was much coveted by other producers), but its Syrahs are brilliant. Red fruit, spice, bacon fat and white pepper combine enticingly on the palate here underpinned by taut minerality.
