Balanced and approachable now with an easy structure and moderate tannins, this Shiraz offers black cherry, fig, boysenberry and brambly fruit flavors all lifted by spicy notes of pepper and nutmeg. Ready to go now.
Decadent scents of buttered brioche, honeydew and crushed yellow flowers lead the nose, while flavors of grilled yellow peaches and orange oil flood the palate. The mouthfeel is round and full, but countered by medium acidity and a slightly bitter note on the close.
Delicate sweet-pea and white-flower aromas marry into forward fruit notes of fresh pear and hard apricot. A mineral streak weaves through the lush palate, and a peach pit nuttiness lingers into the finish. Accessible and enjoyable now.
Aromas are of earth, meat and Indian spice, plus a dash of vanilla. This Syrah picks up some barbecue flavors in the mouth, along with spice and red berry. Soft on the palate, it finishes quickly with menthol and dark berry. Imported by Vineyard Brands.
An oaky, spicy Swartland version of this popular variety, the wine has nice dark fruit flavors with touches of chocolate and a medium-full body that is just shy of showing alcoholic heat in the mouth. Finishes with a hint of leather.
Tropical fruit, pear and honey typify this distinctive Chenin from South Africa's Swartland region. It's round and smooth but not heavy, making it an excellent wine for diverse food pairing. Think hard, salty cheeses or seafood.
Brambly plum and red berry aromas and a lush, full palate make this both approachable and great to drink on its own. Plum, berry and pepper on the palate are smooth and elegant, and the finish is soft and poised.
The spirit of South Africa’s Swartland region shines through on this rustic but fun Shiraz. On the nose, red fruit and a spicy edge lead into big flavors of spice, smoke and fruit. Sturdy tannins give the wine an ageworthy appeal. Pair with grilled meat and heartier flavors for extra enjoyment.
