Vrede en Lust Syrah 2008

A Rhone style Shiraz showing violets, plums and sweet spice with a hint of white pepper. The smooth tannins on the palate confirm the promise of this elegant wine. A juicy mouth feel, with velvet, textured layers and a lingering finish.

Steak, chops, venison and spicy well matured meats.
