Suidooster Shiraz, Kaapzicht

Perched high in Bottelary, these vineyards have one of the best views of Table Mountain. Here, the prevailing south-easter or suidooster wind gusting off False Bay is fierce and unrelenting.

85% Shiraz, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep purple core, with a ruby rim. The wine opens with sweet floral perfumes, developing further to reveal wild bramble, mulberry, spicy rhubarb and liquorice. The palate is generous and juicy, focused and elegant, with harmonious, well-integrated oak, and a long finish.
