Private Collection Syrah 2017
The Saxenburg Private Collection Syrah 2017 has a beautiful nose of black cherries, red berries and a hint of pepper and spice. The palate is seamless – the tannin dense, but finely grained. Hints of oak are beautifully integrated and only adds to the incredible complexity. A note of crushed granite and floral elements brings freshness to the palate that finishes with sweet spice. This is the first vintage labelled as Syrah and not Shiraz. This reflects the efforts in the vineyard and winery to strive for greater elegance and balance while staying true to the heritage of Saxenburg.
Private Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
The Saxenburg Private Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 vintage was in many respects superior to the much famed 2015 vintage and this wine is a testament to that. As is typical with Cabernet Sauvignons from the Polkadraai Hills ward, this wine has an incredible freshness and elegance to it, even though the tannins are still young and firm. Beautiful aromas of tobacco leaves, plums and blackcurrant lead to a palate that is nicely weighted and finely grained.
Private Collection Sauvignon Blanc 2021
The Saxenburg Private Collection Sauvignon Blanc 2021 has an inviting nose with aromas of pear, papaya, gooseberries, and kiwi fruit that leads to a palate with beautiful concentration and texture. The natural acidity lends an incredible sense of minerality and purity to the wine.
