Rustenberg's Buzzard Kloof is a unique vineyard that is planted with French clones of Syrah imported before the turn of the century. The name “Buzzard Kloof” arose from the Jackal and Steppe buzzards that can be seen circling the thermal currents above the kloof (ravine) within which the vineyard is situated. This Syrah is unique in that it planted on one of the coolest and least sun-exposed slopes on the Rustenberg estate, resulting in a long, late ripening process which consistently produces the most structured and full bodied Syrah on the property. 20 months in 40% new French oak pairs deliciously with Syrah's natural spice.
