Vinification

Shiraz grapes for the Grande Provence range come from vineyards high on the SW facing slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains. The 2015 vintage was an excellent year, resulting in a full ripe expression of the cultivar.

Style

A medium-bodied red wine with ripe blackberry and plum flavours followed by delicate white pepper nuances on the nose and palate.  Well integrated oak and soft tannins give the wine a plush palate that lingers in the aftertaste.

This wine was oak matured for 14 months in 30% new French Oak.

Enjoy now or cellar for 3-5 years

Serving suggestion

Our Shiraz can be enjoyed with smoked meats and charcuterie, game dishes and red meat with an intense pepper sauce.
