Survivor launches first full-blooded Swartland Syrah

Survivor, the unbridled range of terroir driven wines, has released its first thoroughbred Swartland Syrah.

A tribute to the feisty Nguni cow that stands proud on every bottle, Survivor Syrah 2019 is a true expression of the hardy Swartland.

“Our single minded focus on crafting terroir specific wines that express their true sense of place and authenticity is the hallmark of our 100% Swartland Survivor Syrah,” says winemaker Ben Snyman, adding that the Swartland is best suited for wines with big, bold flavours.

Capturing the spirit of Africa’s indigenous Nguni, this generous, full-bodied wine brims with luscious layers of spice, violets and blackberries, and entices the palate with soft, velvety tannins and a hint of oak.

“Made with exceptional fruit from low-yielding vineyards, our Swartland Syrah will wow you with its complexity and craftsmanship,” says Snyman who enjoys the wine with barbecue chicken, spicy stir-fry pork, leg of lamb or spare ribs on the braai.

Standing proud in its regal bottle sealed with a bold orange cap, there is nothing shy about this intrepid wine. Survivor Syrah 2019 is available at a cellar door price of R200. For online purchases visit
