The Family Series Winemaker’s Blend 2021 has a nose that shows beautiful notes of ripe yellow pears, baked apples, and sweet apricot blossoms. The fruit follows through to a palate that is textured and marked by a soft, but lingering acidity. There is a sense of minerality throughout the palate, which is a wonderful counterbalance for the richness derived from extended lees ageing.
The Family Series 2nd Generation Syrah 2020 has a beautifully perfumed nose, with loads of freshly cut red berries, pink peppercorn, and a hint of leather. The entry to the palate is bright, beautifully weighted, and opens to a medley of flavour, with wonderful fruit purity. The acidity is refreshing, and the tannins are fine and grippy, while the finish is long and wonderfully dry.
The Family Series Winemaker’s Blend Red 2020 has a beautiful nose filled with aromas of dark, chllli chocolate, fresh cherries, mulberries, ripe plums, and whiffs of pencil shavings. The palate is quite bold and rich, but with a wonderful sense of brightness to it.
The Family Series Winemaker’s Blend Red 2020 is by inspired by wines that possess both complexity and delicacy, the aim was to produce a wine featuring all the white varieties of Saxenburg that would be both thought-provoking and engaging. In my mind, the key to this was creating a wine of extraordinary balance.
