Grande Provence Shiraz 2012 75cl

Platter 4 Stars

Vitis Vinifera - Gold Medal

This Shiraz is made from Stellenbosch fruit and is delicious! Full of flavour, red and dark berries with some chocolate then a light touch of white pepper comes through on the finish. Like all GP wines it has great integrated natural acidity. It's very very smooth and thoroughly enjoyable. Their best vintage yet in my opinion.

Grande Provence Shiraz

"Shiraz grapes for the Grande Provence range come from sought after vineyards in the Stellenbosch area, a region well known for high quality red wines. This was an excellent year for the production of Shiraz, with warm days and limited rainfall, resulting in small berries with concentrated flavour.

A full bodied red wine with ripe blackberry and plum flavours followed by delicate white pepper nuances on the nose and palate. Well integrated oak, soft tannins and an elegant finish, make for a wonderful tasting experience.

This wine was oak matured for 15 months. Enjoy now or cellar for 3-5 years".
