Stellenbosch Vineyards Shiraz 2014

Intense deep ruby red colour. This wine has an attractive but complex bouquet of plum, red berries and white pepper flavours. It is well balanced with layers of dark fruit and spices, complemented by good integrated tannins and a long soft finish.

This wine will pair well with brisket, flame grilled rib-eye steak or hearty beef stews. Suitable for vegetarians but not for vegans.
