Tasting Notes:

This elegant wine is best complimented by game or full-flavoured meat dishes and is ideal to mature for those special winter occasions. This 100 % Shiraz with its warm spicy flavours and hints of coffee strikes a fine balance between fruit and tannins, but more red fruit flavours, reflecting our past experience and the maturity of the vineyards.

Between two mighty oceans, on the southern tip of Africa, lies the historic Saxenburg Wine Farm. Here, memory and the seasons conspire with the cellarmaster’s craft to produce unique wines of consistent and exceptional quality. For centuries wayfarers bound for the East Indies found hospitality and relief at the Fairest Cape. At Saxenburg we extend this tradition and invite you to visit our world.
