Kloovenburg Shiraz 2000

Sold Out
The International Wine & Spirit Competition 2002 - Bronze

The colour is a youthful, opaque dark crimson. This intense wine is packed with juicy, concentrated fruit and crushed black pepper and finished off with a swirl of sweet vanilla oak. Broad, ripe tannins add support and allow for early accessibility. The wine has great finesse and ends on a high, flavourful peppery note.
