The colour is deep red. On the nose you get nuances of plum, violets, cloves and tabacco. The mid-palate is juicy with prominent flavours of black cherries and dark chocolate and a long finish of red berries and espresso.

Food Suggestions

Very versatile with food. This Shiraz goes well with braai meats, steak, meaty pastas, smoked chicken, pork and of course Biltong.


In The Vineyard

Instead of providing lengthy descriptions about a multifaceted wine, we decided to simply capture its essence and highlight a prominent characteristic in the name, Cigarbox. So we created this bold Shiraz with a smooth finish with a clear-cut, simple and identifiable label.


In The Cellar

Vines are nestled in broken shale rocks on a south-facing slope. The small berries are filled with intense flavours of cherries and mulberries when they enter the cellar. Gentle pressing ensures that we get the best juice and we still make use of the punch down method for colour extraction, while the wine ferments in open fermentation tanks.
