19/06/2016 – Cape Heights, Shiraz 2015

(2016) It's not always easy to capture the more fragrant aspects of the Syrah/Shiraz grape, especially in wines that can be bought for less than £6 per bottle, but here winemaker Marinda Kruger-Van Eck has done just that in a wine with peppery, violet-lifted, cherry aromas that leads on to a ripe but savoury palate, the black fruit nicely defined by tannins and fresh acidity, in a highly gluggable but also all-rounder food-friendly wine.
