This Robert Alexander Shiraz is created by champion winemaker Nico Van Der Merwe, who produces wine under his own name as well as for much lauded winery Saxenburg.
It comes across as very brooding, with its deep purple, almost black colour. The nose is a mixture of smoke and mocha. The palate is spicy, with well-incorporated oak flavours, and notes of blackberry. Dashes of white pepper and coffee round out the flavour profile. Seamless, powdery tannins can be detected, leading onto a fruity aftertaste.
The body is full and the wine very graceful in the mouth.
