Vintages Wine Panel: Cellar master and owner, Paul de Villiers is a direct descendant of the French Huguenots who settled in the Cape in the 17th Century. This Shiraz won a Silver Medal at the prestigious Michelangelo International Wine Awards in 2009. Aged for 18 months in mostly new American oak, this 100% Shiraz is deep ruby-purple in colour and features aromas of light cocoa notes and ripe mixed berries. It’s dry, medium bodied with soft blueberry, blackberry and milk chocolate flavours balanced by medium acidity and ripe tannins. My note: A deep and delicious red with terrific mocha-rich macerated blackberries and cherries. Layers and layers of flavor goodness with an espresso-infused finish. Fantastic price.

Shiraz food pairings: beef fillet with black pepper, grilled herb-encrusted lamb.
