Rainbows End Shiraz

Awaing award info but 2012 and 2013 both won SA Novare Terroir Awards - Best Shiraz from Stellenbosch

Rainbows End Shiraz has very quickly set the benchmark for quality Shiraz in Stellenbosch and indeed for South Africa. It's a winning combination of top quality wine at a reasonable price. Many of the best and most famous South African red wines fetch a real premium, so for Anton at Rainbows End being a relative newcomer, he has introduced his wines at affodable prices. Not only has his Shiraz won multiple awards each vintage but so has his Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and his blends. Without doubt Rainbows End is one of the best and best value wineries in Stellenbosch.

Yet another great wine from Anton - all his wines are something special.

Text from Rainbow's End website:

Composition:

100 % Shiraz (Argentinean Clone 9, French Clone 174 & French clone 99)

Tasting Notes:

Deep brooding purple colour. Spices and black pepper on the nose. Full palate with smoky fynbos. Tangy tannins with a savoury aftertaste.

Maturation:

12 Months in 35% new wood, 25% second fill, 25% third fill and 15% French oak barrels. Two rackings during wood maturation. Thereafter bottled without filtering or fining. Natural deposits may therefore be found in the bottle. Can be enjoyed now but is anticipated to reach its optimum in 3-6 years time.
