Rudi Schultz

Sleek and seductive Syrah

 

It was his first taste of top Rhône bottlings that inspired Rudi Schultz, winemaker at the heralded Thelema Mountain Vineyards, to pursue a winemaking career. So when he decided to create an eponymous label, Syrah was the natural varietal of choice. Grapes for Schultz's dazzling bottling are sourced from a vineyard in the Bottelary Hills ward of Stellenbosch and vinified at Thelema. Hailed as a “small production gem” and a “delicious fruit-driven Syrah” that “maintain[s] a sense of freshness and minerality,” the wine has earned a 90+ Wine Spectator rave in every vintage since its 2002 debut.

RUDI SCHULTZ WINES - Syrah
VINEYARDS:
Grapes are sourced from a single vineyard in the Bottelary Hills ward of Stellenbosch,located 22 km from the ocean at an elevation of 106 meters above sea level. The rows are planted northeast to southwest. The soil is a granite based “duplex” form which consists of coarse sand on gravel with a small percentage of wet clay.
VINTAGE:
2009 ended dry and unusually windy. This lead to smaller berries and a smaller crop in general. The dry summer facilitated ideal skin to juice ratios which resulted in dark and finely structured wines. The 2010 vintage is really solid and destined for great ageability, as prominent tannins with glimpses of concentrated fruit are beginning to show.
VINIFICATION AND MATURATION:
The grapes were de-stemmed, hand sorted, crushed and pumped into stainless steel tanks, with 15% of the stems being added back to the must. Fermentation occurred naturally over a period of 6 days, with submerged cap. The wine was left on the skins for an additional five days before pressing. It was then racked to barrel for malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged for 18 months in 225 liter French oak barrels
