2017 Skaapveld Shiraz, MAN Family*
Man family vineyards
Western Cape / South Africa
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Serve at a cool room temperature, with a nice piece of red meat.
Distinctive aromas of ripe plum and pepper spices, mouth-filling sweet red-berry flavours and gentle tannins characterize this wine. A touch of Viognier was co-fermented with the Shiraz for the aromatic lift it gives to the wine, which emphasises the berry fruit and spice aromas on the nose. The American oak barrels give a hint of vanilla spice and contribute to the smooth silky tannins.
