Tasting Notes

This blend of Shiraz and Pinotage will spice up your day with blackcurrant and plum notes and hints of mocha. A delicious mouthful of sweet fruit and mouth filling juicy tannin.

Blend Information

70% Shiraz, 30% Pinotage

Food Suggestions

Although this wine is a great partner to rich lamb casseroles and gentle Malay curries, this wine makes the best companion to a typical South African braai.

About The Harvest

Grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness levels and vinified separately.
HARVEST DATE: February 2016
YIELD: 10 ton/ha

In The Cellar

The Shiraz was matured in 3rd and 4th fill French oak barrels and the Pinotage on French oak staves for 12 months. After a few sample blends the perfect combination Shiraz and Pinotage was found to express both characters.

Additional Information
‘Would that painting not make a beautiful wine label?’ Sue Sonnenberg said to husband, David one night. It wasn’t too long after that momentous night that the iconic Carl Büchner’s Harlequin depiction on the wall in their dining room, became the story behind this red blend.
This wine salutes the memory of this exemplary artist and sales of this wine will also generate a small fund for emerging artists in collaboration with the Assocoation of Arts in Pretoria.
