Wine information
Benguela Cove is situated in the Walker Bay sub-region, just an hour from Cape Town International Airport. Poised on the edge of the Bot River Lagoon, the area is teeming with bird life and natural fauna and flora with the Atlantic Ocean gracing the horizon. The estate, which has 70-hectares of vines, was purchased by entrepreneur Penny Streeter OBE in 2013. The estate has been rewarded for its craftsmanship, led by experienced cellar master Johann Fourie. This Syrah comes along with fresh dark fruit, hints of pepper, sweet spice and a touch of tar. Though the wine offers darker notes, it isn't heavy and finishes on light herbal flavours.

Robin says "Benguela Cove's Backbone Syrah offers a moderately fleshy mouthfeel whilst retaining its varietal roots. This bottle would nicely complement bbq's, picnics and mezze platters."

Packs a punch for the price

I love Rhone wines but find them a bit out of my price range to drink everyday, so looking for some cheaper new world Syrah and this hit the spot for under £10!
