Wolf & Woman Syrah 2022


A blend of two different vineyards, growing in schist and iron soils respectively to showcase the diverse soils of the Swartland.

All parcels were harvested separately and after resting in a cold room for 24 hours, bunch sorting was done. 100% whole bunches were transferred to open-top fermenters where it cold-soaked for 3 days before natural fermentation started. The wine stayed on the skins for another 12 days before light pressing before transferring to 500lt old oak barrels where it rested for 10 months before racking, blending and bottling.

Upfront red and black fruit with spice, fynbos and black pepper. Good fruit structure with savoury and spice on the palate.

ANALYSIS: Alc 13.8% | pH 3.8 | RS 2.4 g/l | TA 5 g/l

What’s in the name? Jolandie’s husband, Gustav, send her this quote a long time ago:
“some days I am more wolf than woman, and I am still learning how to stop apologising for my wild”
So when the new wine needed a name, this came to mind again.

There are many parallels that can be drawn between women and wolves. Loyal, protective, wild and beautiful, both know the unknowable and sense the unseen.

Jolandie Fouché, winemaker and owner of Wolf and Woman, is a lady to not judge lightly. Woman, wife, mother and gentle friend, she has a strong will to produce exceptional wine from special vineyards.
We are privileged and proud supporters of all her wines.
