Powerful and assertive but poised, this exemplary Shiraz from Abraham Perold is a study in balance. Beautiful and subtle berry, pepper and spice mingle, set aloft by a restrained wave of minerality. The wine is structured but delicate, unfolding quietly on the palate. A lovely meeting of Old and New World styles.
Ultratoasty, but in a sweet, appealing way, featuring enveloping flavors of caramelized sugar and vanilla, marinated pork and cherries. The texture is full and verging on custardy in this smooth, luxurious wine from South Africa.
