"A silky red, with distinctive minerality, light tannins and bright acidity that combine to create a backbone behind the flavors of rose hip and hibiscus, revealing a hint of white pepper and a light savory herb edge. Harmonious and graceful, this shows good range and depth. Drink now through 2028. 733 cases made, 30 cases imported.

Vinous 93
The 2018 Follow The Line is mainly Syrah with 14% Cinsault and includes 50% whole-bunch fruit. It has a detailed, tertiary nose of brambly red berry fruit infused with hints of morel. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fine acidity, a gentle, caressing texture and a saline, slightly savory finish that is understated but persistent. Follow this wine. Drink: 2022-2040.

Duncan Savage

View all from Duncan Savage
Duncan SavageDuncan Savage, previously the winemaker at Cape Point Vineyards, introduced his own label in 2011 with a goal to produce rock-solid, classic and elegant wines. Through his time at Cape Point, Duncan grew to understand maritime vineyards, which led him to source grapes for Savage wines from maritime and high altitude sites around the Western Cape. These small, hand-selected parcels receive a lot of love and attention throughout the growing season. Each vineyard's unique terroir contributes in its own special way to the blends. Savage wines are inspired by the great older reds from South Africa and abroad that have stood the test of time, and are made with gentle extraction, minimal intervention, and moderate alcohol.
