South African Shiraz sits perfectly between the blockbusters of the Barossa and the refinement of the Rhone.
Selected vineyards are harvested early in the morning when still cool. Grapes are destemmed and fermented on the skins in a combination of open and closed tanks. Selected vineyards are punched down by hand and wild fermentation is encouraged. Open and closed pump overs are given to carefully extract colour and build a soft, juicy mouthfeel. The fermented wine is aged in a combination of stainless steel tanks and barrels. When ready the wine is painstakingly blended to create both complexity and yumminess.
We love the raspberry, Indian spice and ripe plum aromas. The palate is full and rich with dark chocolate, black forest fruit and smooth sexy tannins.
Can be enjoyed now or cellared at a cool temperature for 5 years.

Go BBQ – nothing shouts ‘Bring me Shiraz!’ like a dry-aged rump steak, cooked to perfection on the barbeque. But because of the smoky spice, this wine goes surprisingly well with Peking duck. veggie burgers, grilled mushrooms, rich pastas and nutty cheeses.
