Cederberg Shiraz 2017
The Cederberg lies about 250 km north of Cape Town. This vast region encompasses approximately 162 000 ha of rugged mountainous terrain, stretching from the Pakhuis Pass behind Clanwilliam in the north, to Grootrivier in the south, towards Ceres. Forty six kilometres inland from the N7, between Citrusdal and Clanwilliam – with two mountain ranges separating the farm from the Olifants River – lies Cederberg Private Cellar on the farm Dwarsrivier. It is the highest wine farm above sea level in the Western Cape.
Nose: A complex Shiraz filled with intense red fruit, mulberry and cherries. 15 Months in oak showing hints of sweet spice and vanilla.
Palate: Red berries follow through on the palate and finishes off with a smooth lingering sensation.
Finish: A well-crafted Shiraz that allows you to cellar the wine for a few years developing into a sensational wine.
Food Pairing: Pair with South African game, powerful cheeses such as young cheddar or gruyere or indulge by pairing with intricate dark bitter chocolate.
