Essay Syrah 2020

2 1/2 Stars – Excellent + / Coastal Region, South Africa

“Essay” is a play on SA for South Africa. The brand is consistently a great value with chenin blanc as well as this red Rhône-style blend of syrah, cinsault, grenache and mourvèdre. It’s juicy and spicy, with tart red-fruit flavors and a hint of wood smoke. At this price, stock up for burger or pizza nights. Alcohol by volume: 13.5 percent. Bottle weight: 465 grams (Light).
