SHIRAZ


Skaapveld refers to the grazing land for sheep that adjoins many of the Shiraz vineyards in our region. Whether the sheep have any effect on the wine is open to debate, but they add a lively encouragement during harvest time.

Our distinctive Shiraz with dark fruit and spicy flavours continues to win plaudits internationally. 
A real mouth-filling wine, the spicy and floral savoury aromas are balanced by ripe fruit flavours and fine tannins on the palate.

From the winemaker:
The Agter-Paarl region is known for its characteristic "winegum" character - a very pure "grapey" fruit expression. We co-ferment some batches with a small portion of Viognier grapes to lift the aromatics and soften the tannins. 20% of the wine matures in small oak barrels for that hint of vanilla spice on the nose and to give extra encouragement to silky tannins. All in all, we like to think we've made a really great wine - and it helps to know that so many other people think so too.

Pairing:
Great with bold meat dishes, strong cheese and any other dish that needs a wine that can stand up to it.
