2016 Shiraz, Cape Heights, Western Cape, South Africa
A ripe and juicy Shiraz, packed with dark fruit flavours and black pepper notes on the palate.
"The Cape sun ensures ripe fruit the nose has depth sweetness the palate is fleshy, rich with layers of black and red fruits. The tannins are fine and integrated velvety and smooth in the middle yet there is enough redcurrant freshness to balance and bring out savoury black pepper spiciness on the finish. It is rich enough for the fuller flavoured meats such as beef and venison yet has enough freshness for lamb and pork." Derek Smedley MW
