Boschendal Shiraz 1999

Dark mulberry in colour, this youthful wine, reminiscent of those from the Rhone Valley, has an aroma of crushed black peppercorn with underlying berry fruit. It is elegant and complex, with well-integrated wood and soft tannins on the palate. An excellent complement to roast fillet, lamb and gammon.
