The Syrah Reserve Dining Table is the sister design of the Vinsanto Reserve Table. Amongst its most striking features are the curved legs, constructed of layered barrel staves, and the numerals that appear on the ends of the massive staves used in the table top. These numerals were applied by the original manufacturer of the 12,000 litre barrels from which they are taken. The barrels were assembled by master coopers in Nancy, France, and the staves then numbered for easy reassembly before the barrels were broken down and shipped to South Africa in the 1930s.
The staves in the table top are orientated in the opposite way to the Vinsanto Reserve so that the outside of the barrel is visible, with the natural variation in stave length retained to give the ends of the table a rustic feel.
The Syrah Reserve is a showstopper, and a true centrepiece for a well-used dining room.
