The Wine

This exciting blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage, and Grenache creates a wine that is truly outstanding. The dark berry flavours from the Cabernet blance nicely with the forward spiciness of the Shiraz. Pinotage, a grape varietal almost unique to South Africa, provides strong tannins and smoky, earthy characteristics.  The Grenache contributes aromas of leather and licorice.

Together these elements offer a complex, full-bodied wine that pairs well with roasted red meats seasoned with marinades or savoury herbs and aged hard cheeses.
