Tasting Notes

Perched high in Bottelary the prevailing south-easter or ‘suidooster’ wind gusting off False Bay is fierce and unrelenting. As it carves its way around the granitic outcrops between the vines it delivers small berries, shaping a Shiraz with deep concentration and refinement.
A full-bodied dry red wine.
