Shiraz grows like it wants to fly away – especially on the precarious slopes of our windswept mountain. Hand-dug holes on the rockiest aspect of our farm keep these vines anchored in the bedrock of our dreams. Eight nerve-racking years of patient vine husbandry slipped into memories and historical weather data before we excitedly welcomed an intense, but small crop into our winery. A further two winters resting in barrel rewarded us with the essence of mother nature’s humbling power and magnificence. Cellared respectfully this wine will develop gracefully for at least two decades after harvest. Enjoy.
All you really need for this wine is a magnificent view and an African sunset. Preferably in the bush, with the smell of wood fire smoke, baked red earth, crushed dried grass and the roar of a territorial lion in the distance.
