About the wine

Spicy, bold and oozing in rich fruit - a versatile Shiraz from your 1st Winemaker of the Year
  • From the smoky oak to the intense blackberry, pepper and dark fruit vibes, Carmen's pure South African Shiraz is an all-out crowd pleaser.
  • With your support, Carmen was able to harvest grapes from three distinct Shiraz vineyards in the Swartland region of South Africa. She fermented each block separately before she made the final blend - to capture all bold berry flavors she could muster!
  • Shiraz is the kind of wine that can stand up to BIG flavors, so you can bust this one out with everything from your favorite 12” pepperoni, to a fiery Indian curry.

Best before
The Shiraz has all the attributes for aging: deep color, ripe tannin structure, a great acid balance and a hint of smoky oak. The Shiraz has the ability to age for 3- 5 years in which time all the prominent primary fruit will turn to secondary, more mature fruit.

Serving advice
This wine needs to be decanted for a minimum of 30 min before enjoyment. The contact that the wine will have with the oxygen will bring all the trapped flavor to the fore while smoothing out the tannin and acidity.

Food match
Shiraz is one of the most forgiving wines in terms of food pairings. South African Shiraz is your typical BBQ wine because of the spicy expression of the varietal but this wine also pairs well with any cured meats, even dark chocolate. I tried this wine with BBQ lamb chops seasoned with salt and pepper, a beautiful combo, please try it!
