Patina Goldmine Swartland Syrah 2019
Intense with an abundance of dark berry fruit, juicy black plums and brambles, and whiffs of aniseed, leather and charcoal. Medium to full-bodied, dense and fleshy, with a solid core of fruit and grippy, fine tannins, with enough acidity to balance.
Tim Atkin MW SA Report 2021:
"Patina is a classic expression of Syrah grown on schist soils, with racy, floral, baking spice aromas, fine, silky, aromatic strawberry and red cherry fruit, some texture from 50% whole bunches and no new oak. A Cape Cote Roti. Plush, yet refined. 2022-26"
