2013 Shiraz / Cabernet Sauvignon
45% Cabernet Sauvignon
Stellenbosch, South Africa
12 & 26 year old Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards, respectively. Situated on south and west facing slopes be-tween 180 and 195m above sea level consisting of decom-posed granite and loam soils.
Winemakers Notes: Christian Kuun
This lively, fruit driven, 55/45 blend offers subtle flavours of white pepper and spices complimented by juicy ripe plums, dark berries, stewed fruit and hints of sweet cassis followed by gentle lingering smokiness. This soft, smooth and well structured wine with its lovely balanced acid and ripe, integrated tannins will drink divinely now and will continue to impress for another 5 years if cellared correctly.
Compliments most braai (barbecue) dishes.
