2016 Bohemian Syrah, Schalk Burger, Welbedacht, Wellington
£19.99 £18 per bottle
My final red is a beast, but with a gentle touch. Schalk Burger senior is a giant who wore the number 6 jersey for the Springboks. His son, Schalk Burger junior, is even bigger and he achieved the same distinction and has until recently been a vital cog in the Saracens pack! Now imagine this father and son team in red wine form. My job here is done!
While this is an imposing and meaty wine, it’s drinking perfectly and there is surprising tenderness and composure on the finish. Having met them both, this is something I have yet to encounter with the aforementioned gents!
