Other Our Syrah is grown as echalas vines (three sites) as well as trellised vines (two sites) on clay-shale rich soil with a high component of quartz rock. Our Syrah plantings capture all the different aspects of the Olifantsberg mountain, situated at 300 m to 470m above sea-level. The cooler micro-climate of the traditional echalas has a higher acidity and a different aromatic complexity than the trellised vines. By selecting from the different Syrah clones, we have further enhanced our wines natural complexity. Clones 9; 470; 21; 22
