Spice up your meal with our distinct and spicy South African Shiraz. This wine's bouquet suggests ripe berries with green pepper and spicy flavours. There is excellent follow through onto the palate where the peppery flavours dominate. The well-integrated, ripe tannins make for easy accessibility.

A fine wine for classic roasts, great steaks and venison and soft creamy cheeses.
