Vrede en Lust Artisan Shiraz / Cabernet 2013

The Shiraz shows spice and an upfront fruit character, which is well balanced by the typical Cabernet berry aromas. The Ricton fruit contributes more spice and more primary fruit, while Block 5 contribute violets and the tannin structure.

Well paired with a braai, steak & venison. The Lamb Burger from LUST is a firm favourite for this wine. Very enjoyable by itself too!
