Finally… the Union was a long time coming, but to find the right terroir for this specific style of wine took a lot of effort and thoughtful planning. Grown entirely in the Tulbagh region the 2016 Union is dark and inky. Predominantly Syrah, this wine has got ample complex aromas of blue berries, charcoal, violets and bacon fat. The Union consists of 44% Syrah, 34% Carignan and 22% Mourvèdre. Exotic, smoky and thick with elegance as well as excellent definition. Extraordinary balance between primary fruit aromas and deep charry mineral components gives the wine an inviting natural warmth and broodiness.
The label scene is set in Tulbagh and it carries the message of unification. The two entities on the other labels, the girl (Mother Nature) and the swift (the Winemaker) finally found a place to be together. The tree in the background takes the role of stability and calmness that anchors them.
