Wine tasting notes

There is an old sign as you head into Riebeek Kasteel from Hermon that reads “Welcome to Shiraz countryâ€. It was true many moons ago and is still just as true today. This wine is from a selection of vineyards around the Swartland, combining barrels from the granite sands in the Paardeberg with those from wines that came from the koffieklip soils west of Malmesbury. My vision is to make a wine that will focus on freshness, and show lively fruit, ranging from red cherry to the black savouriness of liquorice. A first impression of red fruit leads into the darker side of Shiraz. Red currants flowing towards cassis and black cherry with delicate white and brown spice in the background. A firm, yet delicate, tannin puts the Swartland stamp on this wine
