Premium artisan Shiraz which has beaten many big names in competitions including the wonderful Eagles Nest.
Only 1600 bottles produced of which we could only get 120.
This wine is stunningly good! And presented in a big heavyweight embossed bottle sealed with a wax top.
Very deep ruby colour with a big nose. Huge concentrated flavours with just a little South African heat, some white pepper, then the oak comes through with subtle vanilla on the very long finish.
Beautiful mouthfeel and silky smooth. South African “Rhone”. This is right up there with the very best wines we sell.

The Vineyard/ Terroir:
This single vineyard Shiraz is rooted in Tukulu soils, which are derived from ancient, decomposed granite. The vineyard is situated on a cooler Southern facing slope, and together with the cool Atlantic breezes it has a long ripening period which ensures the even ripening of the berries with a naturally crisp acidity.
Harvesting was done by hand when grapes reached phenolic ripeness. Fermentation lasted fourteen days at lower-than-average fermentation temperatures to capture the elegant primary flavours and aromas. This wine aged for sixteen Months in 225ℓ French oak barrels with no filtration or stabilizing before bottling, therefore harmless sediment may occur over time.
