VINIFICATION

Shiraz grapes for the Grande Provence range come from vineyards high on the southwest facing slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains. The 2017 vintage was an excellent year, resulting in a full ripe expression of the cultivar.

 

STYLE

This medium-bodied red wine has ripe blackberry, blackcurrent, plum and fruitcake, with hints of toffy, vanilla, licorice and mulled spice flavours followed by delicate white pepper nuances on the nose and palate.  Well integrated oak and soft tannins give the wine a plush palate that lingers on the aftertaste.

This wine was oak matured for 21 months in 30% new French oak.

Enjoy now or cellar for 4-6 years

 

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

This Shiraz can be enjoyed with smoked meats and charcuterie, game dishes and red meat with an intense pepper sauce.
