Winemaker Notes

Duncan Savage was the winemaker at Cape Point Vineyards' for 14 vintages. In 2011, he started his own label on the side. Through his time at Cape Point, Duncan grew to understand maritime vineyards and crafted a reputation for profound and saline whites with great aging potential; this led him to source grapes for his own project, Savage Wines, from similar maritime and high altitude sites. His wines were met with great acclaim and in 2016 he quit his job to turn his attention to his namesake project. At first he created wine by borrowing other people's wineries but today he uses his own winery in Salt River, Cape Town. Duncan is no doubt one of the best winemakers in South Africa. In fact, Tim Atkin (MW) has proclaimed, "Duncan Savage thinks he hasn't hit his full potential yet. Heaven help his rivals when he does.

93 Points, Vinous

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.
