Our objective is the best of both worlds (i.e. Northern & Southern Hemisphere characteristics): classic, spicy, peppery Shiraz, with layers of firm, ripe tannins and, minerality –woven into abundant juicy fruit. Our challenge each vintage is to accomplish balance; not easy in our sunny climate. This Shiraz has power and restraint, backbone and fruit. A combination of attributes representing what the Cape has the potential to do best, with the varietal many people believe to be the most well-suited to this Region.
Good hearty fruitful notes, very pleasant Shiraz smell. Tart, acidic tongue and mouthfeel. Pows into your mouth and softens with the sip. The small amount of Merlot knocks the dry down a touch into an enjoyable slightly fruit first taste. Dark ruby color. Definitely a drinker!
