The Strandveld Wines First Sighting Shiraz offers excellent value in the sense that it is a multi-award winner. The 2012 vintage was honoured with a spot in the Top 12 at the Shiraz SA Challenge and now the 2017 has the same honour!
This is a full-bodied red, with nose-filling aromas of mocha and spicy pepper greeting the nose, followed by lively red berry fruit flavours on the palate. Multifaceted, lengthy tannins fill the mouth, leading to a smooth finish.
Thai duck, Springbok sirloin or beef stew will pair famously with this wine.
98% Shiraz, 2% Viognier
