Natalie's Score: 91/100

Dark chocolate, smoke and bacon on the nose and palate. Savoury, hearty and robust great: this gloriously rich and concentrated South African Shiraz shows just how magnificently the country handles this varietal. The vines are planted at high altitudes. Finishes with wild violets and longing.

Shiraz food pairings: meat lover's pizza, prime rib, roast quail.

Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

While this wine offers notions of black fruit and floral elements on the nose, it's beauty really is on the palate. Lots of rich textures mainly rich viscosity. Finishes quite dry with fruit lingering along at medium power levels.
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted blind at wine club Nov. 15th 2017. Colour, ruby red, legs medium thick suggests about 13.5 to 14%. Aromas and flavours of, blueberry, plum, blackberry, black cherry, chocolate. Taste, dry, fruity plus, medium plus body, soft tannin, mouthwatering, balanced alcohol. Finish, medium plus mouthwatering fruit. I liked this wine it was my number one choice of the 5 wines we tried. They group had this as a tie for first also.
What appealed to me was the mouthwatering a fruit taste, just leads you to drink again.
I could drink this on its own or pair it with a game meat.
