Koopmanskloof Shiraz 2015

Deep ruby red colour. Ripe fruit on the nose with pronounced aromas of black berry, toasted herb and spicy undertones. Palate is well structured, elegant and beautifully balanced with a touch of well integrated oak aromas supporting the varietal fruit. Soft assertive tannins which completes a medium to full bodied wine.

Enjoy on its own or with rack of lamb.
