In a nutshell:
A fresh and vibrantly fruity South African Shiraz from grapes grown in the foothills of the Swartland mountains.
The hot and dry climate of the region the unirrgated grapes for this are grown in means the vines have to work hard and produce only low yields and small berries, but with bags of flavour and character. A portion of the grapes are whole bunch fermented which allow the ripe stems to add a touch of robust tannins to the wine which sit well with the fruity and spicy aromas for which shiraz is well known. The final belnd is aged in French oak barrels which adds complexity, weight and mouthfeel. The result is a bright and lively wine positively humming with sappy juicy fruit with a bright mineral palate before reaching the long, elegant finish.
When to drink:
A wine made with the barbecue (or Braai) in mind, it's a great partner to homemade burgers or sticky spare ribs.
