Shiraz 2017

R 190.00


A consistent winner of multiple awards through the years, the 2016 vintage is no exception.

Carefully sourced from specially selected vineyards in the Firgrove and Paarl areas, the grapes were vinified separately using two different methods, allowing the unique characteristics of each vineyard to shine through. After meticulous blending, the wine was matured for thirteen months in American and French oak barrels, twenty percent new.

Deep purple in colour with a violet meniscus, floral white pepper and enticing nuances of mocha and clove on the nose precede generous aromas of black cherry, blueberry and mulberry with hints of fynbos and liquorice.

A delectable entry of sweet pomegranate and red cherry fruit on the palate is enveloped by savoury, silky tannins that develop into a long, elegant floral finish with lingering hints of red plum.

Exceptionally versatile as a food wine, it would pair excellently with most meats from Springbok to lamb shank and steak. Elegance and spice, however, beckon for tomato based pasta.
