One of South Africa's most decorated Shiraz, from the uniquely located and extremely highly rated Cederberg Private Cellar.
With a cool continental climate, diverse soil types, unpolluted air and free-flowing crystal clear waters, Cederberg wines are situated at 1036 meters above sea level in a virus free area. This means 250 kilometres from Cape Town you will find the highest laying wine farm in the Western Cape. In summer expect a dramatic temperature drop at night and in winter snow-capped mountains.
A multi-layered and complex Shiraz showing red cherries and mulberries with a subtle mocha, clove nuances. Complex on the palate with long lasting flavours of red fruit and dark chocolate. A full bodied wine with mouth-watering tannins..
Pair this wine with South African game with soft dark spices like cloves and cinnamon, fresh pepper and spice balls. If the barbeque includes slightly sweet sauces, try the Shiraz, but a strong cheese soufflé will make the knees go weak. End the evening with a tiny block of dark chocolate – meaning skip the port. Marrow and truffle are two richer foods that pair very well with Shiraz.
