As always, the Rall Red is held back an extra year in bottle prior to release as it is the more structured of the reds. 70% Syrah 12% Grenache 10% Carignan and 8% Cinsault. This release sees the lowest proportion of Syrah to date, as from 2017 onwards he introduced Cinsault and Carignan to blend, as earlier picked varieties to help balance the naturally higher levels of concentration due to the drought. Donovan Rall says: “I see this as a more Southern Rhône style red this year.” Ripe, brambly forest fruit, mint, spice, red plum and blackcurrant are just some of the fruits here in the generous 2018, before some leathery spice and earthier notes begin to emerge too. Less tannic than the 2017 perhaps but with a fruitier character, chock full of interest. All Swartland fruit. The Syrah is sourced from Roundstone and Papkuilfontein, which are significant properties in the region.
