OUR AWARD-WINNING SHIRAZ
The same care and dedication lavished on our guests goes into the making of Andreas’ exclusive, award-winning Shiraz.
Ruby red edges, with deep dark red core. Plums, dry prunes, damsons and cherries with hints of dry mint, cinnamon and violets and notes of spices and herbs. Full and rich, juicy and appealing. Packed with ripe red and black fruits, spicy and peppery, with a soft middle palate finish and notes of bitter dark chocolate. Wine shows well on the finish with good presence of acidity and medium to high tannins. Well-structured, with good body.
After months of careful nurturing, the grapes are hand-picked in the early morning and brought cool and dew-fresh to the cellar, to await their metamorphosis at the skilful hands of our full-time winemaker, Shaun Meyeridricks, formerly of Boekenhoutskloof. Our wine spends between 12 and 18 months in French barrels, before being allowed a further period of 12 to 18 months to mature in the bottle.
The result is smooth, full-bodied, top-of-the-range wine, with characteristic peppery, spicy, and berry flavours. Our boutique size means we are able to exercise strict, hands-on quality control at each stage of the winemaking process, from the vineyard to the cellar. Everything from grape to bottle takes place on the farm. Experience our exceptional wine by booking a tasting and/or private cellar tour with our knowledgeable staff. For South African customers, our award-winning Shiraz is also available to purchase from our user-friendly online shop.
