Two Tuns Shiraz

Before we planted our vineyard at Higher Plot we made a small amount of wine in South Africa. In 2005 together with our friend Richard, we bought two tons of Shiraz grapes from a single vineyard in Swartland. We were helped by our friend Zakkie Bester who runs the cellar in the outstandingly beautiful Riebeek valley. The wine won a Silver at the International Wine Challenge which is pretty much the worlds largest wine competition and was the highest award for a South African Shiraz that year. It is beautifully round and mature and typically of the region it is big and rich but even with 15% alcohol it is nicely balanced.
