A Taste of Shiraz

Nederburg The Winemasters : Colour: Dark ruby. Bouquet: Aromas of prunes and cherries, oak spice and a hint of dark chocolate. Palate: A rich, full-bodied wine with ripe plum, prune and dark chocolate flavours, a good tannic structure and lingering oak spice on the aftertaste.

Flagstone Dark Horse: Colour: Dark, rich plummy colour. Bouquet: Complex combination of white pepper, cigar box, mint and a concentration of dark fruit supported by subtle spicy undertones. Palate: The complexity on the nose flows over to the palate. The wine is big and round on entry with smooth and silky tannins that show well even though the wine is still young. Nice fruit on the back palate combined with a well-balanced acidity is responsible for a lingering finish and rounds off a perfectly balanced wine.

Raka Biography : Appearance: Clean Ruby Colour. Style: Dry. Bouquet & Palate: Spicy and savoury aromas on the nose. A complex pallet with pepper and wild herbs followed by Christmas pudding fruit and tobacco. Well rounded and elegant finish.

KWV Classic Collection : This vibrant Shiraz shows prominent fruit sweetness with aromas of cherry, raspberry and dried herbs. Undertones of cedar and dark chocolate are accompanied by a juicy and dimensional mid-palate with a well-integrated tannin structure and an elegant, lingering finish.

Perdeberg : A deep purple Shiraz, with dark plum, black berry and white pepper flavours. The intensity of the fruit is carried on to the palate where it fills one’s mouth with dark, sweet fruit, rounded off by a dash of well managed oak. The aftertaste is long and integrated.

Kleine Zalze Vineyard Selection Barrel Matured : The wine shows the great density of flavour which is typical of our Shiraz. Initial aromas of ripe red fruits are followed by hints of spice. These flavours follow seamlessly on the palate with a bold, yet refined tannin profile that we believe gives the wine great ageing potential.
