Wildeberg Coterie Grenache Syrah 2021


Grenache 67%, Syrah 33%. Full-bodied, smooth and bursting with berry fruit. Well balanced and vibrant with a beautiful new release.

Wildeberg’s rationale is to source the finest vineyards available to us across Franschhoek and the Coastal Region, from which cuvées the eyes are plucked to make Wildeberg and the Terroir Series releases. In doing so there remains a small yet definitive expression of all the vineyards they work with, and it’s these cuvees that are again selected to go into Coterie by Wildeberg. All fruit is hand-harvested in February from selected sites in Franschhoek and Paarl.

Both cultivars are fermented whole bunch, with some whole berry fruit. There is no crush, just a daily pump over during the natural fermentation. They say “we want to express place over cultivar so this slow, gentle extraction gives wines truer of origin than winery. The components are racked to French and Austrian oak, new and old, for 10 months before the blend is decided. This blend is then allowed to marry for 6 weeks prior to coarse filtration and bottling on the farm.”
