Bon Courage Shiraz 2005

2007 SA Terroir Wine Awards - Robertson District and Swellendam District Terroir Awards: Top Shiraz
Although there remains some youthful greenness, the bouquet of this full-bodied wine suggests tremendously ripe fruit, reminiscent of spicy plum jam. Ripe, sweet-fruited nose with loads of berry fruit, pepper and vanilla with subtle hints of Karoo bos. Full rounded mouth adds plum to all that the nose suggested. Smoke and spice develop as the glass stands.

Good food wine, especially rich stews and winter food. It is ideal with spiced game casseroles, stuffed roast pork of lamb or pickled tongue.
