Less than an hour's drive from Cape Town, the heart of South African wine region Broad Canyon, is Elephant Mountain Family Vineyards. This handmade wine based on Syrah with small additions of the bush grapes Grenache, Carignan and Mourvèdre. This is a great Syrah with typical spiciness and a nice minerality due to the almost unique terroir. The Silhouette has won gold in 2015 in the most prestigious wine competition in South Africa, the predominant OLD MUTUAL TROPHY WINE SHOW and has since won the 1st prize given for Best Shiraz-based blend and up to 94/100 points. The 2014 vintage has the maximum score of 5 * gotten Platter. Uniquely for a wine of this price range. In contrasts to what example Stellenbosch across the gulf is wide gap is an almost-looking Priorat terroir with lots of slate. This explains the fine mineral tones in the wines of Elephant Mountain.
