Winery of the Week: Trizanne Signature Wines

There’s plenty of variety (and harvest-time driving) in Trizanne Barnard’s vinicultural life – even beyond making wines for her own not insubstantial brand with grapes from both cool Elim, Darling and warm Swartland, her elegant, restrained vinifications happening in rented space at far-away Cape Point Vineyards. She also sources grapes and wine for offshore clients, including bulk wines. Exports of these and her signature bottlings are increasing yearly, she affirms.


Trizanne Signature Wines Darling Barbera 2015

Trizanne Signature Wines range
Category: Barbera

2015 from Darling more rustic than refined, but joyous & delicious. Aromatic, full of fruit, with good savoury touch, held by mildly grippy tannins & good varietal acid. More

Trizanne Signature Wines Reserve Syrah 2015

Trizanne Signature Wines range
Category: Shiraz/syrah

Previously 'Elim Syrah', & still from 3 vineyards there. 2 superb vintages reviewed, both made with minimal intervention, old-oak maturation, revealing cool-climate finesse. 2014 stresses the peppery herbal side, with lily notes on the palate; powerful (with slight sweetness & warmth on long, spicy finish) yet rather elegant. 2015 () also big, but subtler, with more amplitude & harmony, the acid riper. Both lovely in youth, but should develop, like last-tasted 2009 (). More
