De Grendel Shiraz 2018

R1,212.00per case of 6

The De Grendel Shiraz 2018 has a palate that expresses red fruits, soft fused tannins and a luscious savoury finish. This Shiraz pairs perfectly with Karoo lamb, homemade cheeseburgers or an earthy mushrooms risotto. 

 

This Shiraz portrays a bright purple colour with a deep violet rim. The De Grendel Shiraz has aromas of peppery spices, blackcurrants and fruit cake that merges with the whiff of Karoo shrubs and violet scents. A wine that will only grow in characteristics over the next eight years.

 

De Grendel is not just one of the oldest farms in Cape Town, it is the only vineyard in South Africa that is 350m above sea level and only seven kilometers from the ocean. The farm is a testament to the centuries-old history of the Graaff family.
