Rudi Schultz Syrah 2013

Rudi Schultz Syrah 2013


Rudi Schultz’s stunning Syrah, sourced from a single vineyard in Stellenbosch, captivates with blackberry and pepper aromas, balanced tannins, and a complex, fresh minerality.


This magnificent Syrah captivates from the outset, revealing delightful fragrances of blackberry, black cherry, raspberry, and pepper that persist on the expansive palate. Well-balanced tannins and enticing notes of mocha, earth, and spice contribute to the intricate character of this singular vineyard release crafted by Rudi Schultz, the esteemed winemaker at Thelema.

Inspired by his initial encounter with premium Rhône wines, Schultz embarked on a winemaking journey at the renowned Thelema Mountain Vineyards. When he decided to establish his own namesake label, Syrah emerged as the obvious choice of varietal. The grapes for Schultz’s remarkable bottling are sourced from a vineyard in the Bottelary Hills ward of Stellenbosch and undergo vinification at Thelema. Described as a “small production gem” and a “delicious fruit-driven Syrah” that “retains a sense of freshness and minerality,” these wines have earned acclaim from the press for their excellence.
