A Fireside Favourite - This rich, warming red pairs with cosy evenings alongside the fire.
Spicy, ripe plum flavours, easygoing tannins and a creamy aftertaste makes this your red wine go-to. Add sparkle to even the most humdrum of pizzas (yes, even Hawaiian!). This Shiraz is also gorgeous with seared ostrich or springbok carpaccio.

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS
The vertical trellised vines were planted between 7 and 22 years ago on undulating hills of decomposed granite and weathered sandstone. Where the clay subsoils are too structured and porous, supplementary irrigation is used to ensure optimal foliage and even ripening. These vineyards are planted up to 80 km from the coast with geographical influence from mountains and the cold Atlantic coast. Complexity is achieved by blending these different regional wines.
Grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness, gently crushed and de-stemmed to stainless-steel tanks. Fermentation lasted up to 12 days on the skins.
A portion of the wine (20%) was transferred to neutral barrels and the balance to stainless-steel tanks with French-oak staves for malolactic fermentation and maturation. The wine matured for a minimum of 12 months before blending.
