About the Wine
93 points, Tim Atkin MW
“This is the eighth vintage of Stark-Condé’s Syrah, which always contains a splash of cofermented Roussanne and Viognier. Showing the freshness and perfume of the Jonkershoek Valley, even in drought years, this has a nice combination of red cherry and raspberry fruit, stony grip and minerality and very understated wood. 2022-28”
About The Winery
Stark-Condé is a family-run winery making handcrafted wines using tried and true traditional methods. The family property in the Jonkershoek Valley is 600 acres with 85 acres under vine. In addition to being viticulturally ideal, the estate is visually spectacular and attracts visitors from afar. Meticulous viticulture, selected harvesting, hand grape- sorting, small-batch fermentation, patient barrel maturation — these are the guiding philosophies behind the wines. The carefully-crafted wines speak with personality of a particular terroir.
