Raka Biography Shiraz 2003

Veritas 2006 - Gold
Swiss International Air Lines Wine Awards 2006 – Bronze
This Shiraz presents a heady nose of peppercorns, pimento and ripe fruit with just a hint of coconut. The palate fulfils this promise. A well structured wine, with approachable tannins and balanced wood integration.
