South Africa
Mourvedre, Shiraz, Viognier
Red Wine

Wine Spectator Notes : Direct, with a good blast of cherry compote flavors, lined with dried anise and backed by a dash of vanilla. Has just enough grip to stay honest. Drink now.

Tasting Notes : A distinctive wine: juicy and complex with well-rounded and lingering flavours. Dark claret in colour, the bouquet is aromatic with gamey and liquorice aromas. The palate has mouth-filling blackcurrant and plum flavours with finely integrated tannins. A combination of Mourvedre, Cinsaut & Grenache is small proportions adds soft red fruit and fine spice characters. In addition, Touriga Nacional, incorporated for the first time, contributes length and structure to the finish. This layered, medium to full-bodied Shiraz will complement slow-cooked casseroles, game and barbequed foods. Serve at a cool room temperature. Skaapveld means Sheep Field. Skaapveld refers to the grazing land for sheep that adjoins many of the Shiraz vineyards from this region. Whether they have any effect on the wine is open to debate, but they add a lively encouragement during harvest time.
