Amistad means "friendship" in Spanish, and represents the togetherness that's at the heart of the Black Elephant project. Winemaker & viticulturalist Jacques Wentzel has hand-harvested Syrah from five distinct vineyards around the stunningly beautiful Franschhoek valley. Natural fermentation, with just under one-quarter as whole bunches. Bereft of chemical additives and minimal added sulphur. Goes through an old basket press prior to a year in French oak barrels (a mixture of 225, 300 and 500-litres, one-tenth new the rest old).
Massive Syrah aroma of blackcurrants, black pepper and herbal Mediterranean garrigue notes such as lavender. Full-bodied yet silky, with a thirst-quenching wet-stone minerality (where did that come from?) and a spicy finish. Long. Sublime. Best served slightly below room temperature. Just 4,700 bottles produced.
