2015 The Navigator SGM, Strandveld, Cape Agulhas, South Africa
Regular price £111.00
Shiraz (55%)/ Grenache (26%)/ Mourvèdre (9%)/ Viognier (7%). In homage to Prince Henry the Navigator and patron of early Portuguese exploration, this aromatic Rhône blend seamlessly integrates the rich flavours of Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Viognier. Notes of blackberries and juicy plum combine with white pepper, cloves and a lifted, floral aroma on the finish from the Viognier.
Nestled between Elim and Cape Agulhas, and just 9km from the sea, lies the secluded Strandveld Vineyards. This wind-swept winery derives its name from the belt of land which spans the tempestuous tip of Africa’s southernmost coastline. At almost 35 degrees below the equator, this part of the Cape is characterised by severe winds, billowing mist and below average temperatures. A unique combination of maritime climate and diverse soil types work together to create the terroir which distinguishes the wines of Strandveld Vineyards.
14% ABV. Suitable for Vegetarians.
