Andreas Shiraz MAGNUM
Tasted blind this could be confused with a top Chateauneuf du Pape - no kidding. This is boutique winemaking at it's best
Country: South Africa
Intense Ruby Garnet in colour with an elegant nose expressing nutmeg, crushed black pepper, with subtle aniseed, ripe mulberry and dark chocolate. The palate has subtle smoky flavours, blackberries, plums and dark chocolate blending with dry ripe tannins showing a well balanced wine with silky smooth wood integration.
Andreas only produce this wine - and they are good at it. The wine is aged for 18 months in French and American oak and bottle matured for another year.
