Excelsior Shiraz South Africa

£8.75 £7.50

This vintage unsurprisingly won a Gold at the 2016 Michaelangelo Awards.
Recommended in The Guardian.
30% of the wine was aged in french and american oak barrels for 8 months.Spicy and dried herbs, every bit a Shiraz but with more restraint and structure than an Aussie Shiraz of the same price (in my humble opinion). Good spice and tannins make it good with food but it’s still soft enough to enjoy on its own. Maybe it’s the 15% of Petit Verdot in the blend which elevates it from the norm?
