With many South African wines drunk young, this case showcases the wonderful aging potential that many of the top quality red wines have. These wines are from the premier SA growing regions including Hemel-en-Aarde, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Along with the 6 bottles of wines all with over 10 years bottle age, a free bottle of Lanzerac Pionier Pinotage 2012, ideal for aging!)
The 6 bottle clase includes:
Muratie Shiraz 2000
One of the oldest vineyards in SA located in Stellenbosch, this Shiraz has mellowed with age but still rich with blackberry and hints of spice.
Tokara Red 2004
This Stellenbosch vineyard is consistently rated in the top 10 in SA, and this is their signature wine. A bordeaux blend, silky with cassis and black cherry.
Sumaridge Syrah 2003
One of the top Hemel-en-Aarde estates famous for its Chardonnay, Syrah and Pinot Noir. Peppery notes overlying a warm red berry palate.
Seidelberg Cecilia 2006
A Malbec led red from Paarl, the vineyard is now sadly no longer having been purchased by neighbouring Fairview.
J P Bredell Shiraz 2000
Produced from some of the oldest bush vines in SA, an unfiltered Shiraz offering great complexity and depth. Smooth with a touch of vanilla.
Zorgvliet Richelle 2005
Located between Tokara and Muratie, this is the flagship Bordeaux blend of the estate. 21 months in new French oak offers cedarwood and supple tannins.
Plus free bottle of Lanzerac Pionier Pinotage 2012
World renowned as the first producer in the world of this South African varietal, this wine is a homage to the original from the 1960's. Will easily age for a further 20 years.
