Vinous 88 points - (82% Syrah, 16% Mourvedre and 2% Viognier): Bright, dark red. A touch of reduction to the aromas of raspberry, pepper, menthol and herbs. Smooth in texture but a bit medicinal in the early going, with the raspberry, black cherry, menthol and licorice flavors showing a distinctly cool quality. Finishes with serious dusty tannins that turn a bit dry with air. Lacks charm.  (Jun 2015)

"Sourced from Malmesbury in the Swartland the Syrah provides the spice and weight while the Mourvedre adds structure and aroma to the blend. The pungent Viognier component boosts the perfume profile. French oak matured with the Viognier blended prior to bottling.Intense red colour with a purple rim. A spicy profile with ripe black fruit and violets. Smooth and rich on the palate with soft tannins, good density and a hint of oak. A well balanced, unpretentious wine made for easy drinking." -Winery
Wine maker notes
When the farm was founded, the Franschhoek valley was far wilder than it is today - as the wolf trap we once discovered goes to show. Today, the mountains are still alive with indigenous animals, including the majestic leopard. No evidence of wolves has ever been found though, so we created this wine to remind us of the mysteries and legends of days gone by.

Producer
Bayten (formerly known as Buitenverwachting) was part of the original Constantia estate founded in 1685 by Simon van der Stel, the first governor of the Dutch Colony at the Cape. One of South Africa’s premier estates, this beautiful farm is situated on the east-facing slopes of the magnificent Constantiaberg Mountain, just south of Cape Town and a few miles from False Bay. Today under the guidance of current proprietor Lars Maack, the winery has earned a reputation as the source of some of South Africa’s most exquisite, mineral-tinged white wines. Bayten is a Dutch word that means ”beyond expectation.” Cellarmaster Herman Kirschbaum and winemaker Brad Paton continue to craft stunning wines that deliver on that promise to exhilarate the senses.
