The Simonsig Estate Mr Borio's Shiraz has won several awards over the years for its various vintages.
The wine is a plum colour with a purple edge. Buoyant red berries and cherries fill the nose, along with black fruit and just a hint of vanilla.
A sweet spiciness meets with delicate yet commanding oak on the palate. The tannins are pleasingly smooth.
If pairing this Shiraz with food, opt for burgers with a retro monkeygland sauce, braaied ribs or chops, a meat lover’s pizza, venison or cottage pie, or bacon-stuffed mushrooms.
