LE2013 - South African Shiraz Cabernet with Grape Skins

South African Shiraz Cabernet with Grape Skins
Order by November 29th for January 2014

Worcester Vineyards, South Africa
The sunny southern tip of Africa bathes Worcester vineyards, located north of Capetown, with immense sunshine hours and heat. Luckily the proximity of the Indian and Atlantic oceans not only brings much needed rain, but also the perfect Mediterranean climate to grow extremely ripe, rich grapes. 


This classic blend showcases the depth and ripeness of these intense grapes. Cabernet Sauvignon's classic character of blackberry, currants, black cherry and cedar blend seamlessly with the densely packed berry, chocolate, espresso and pepper characters of Shiraz, with a hint of earthiness. As it ages it will show ever more blackberry along with plum and a hint of tobacco leading to rich vanilla and toasty-smoky notes. Definitely a carnivore's wine, this will complement grilled meat, roasts and game, but will also work extremely well with mushroom risotto.

Sweetness: Dry
Body: Full
Alcohol: 14.5%
