    Dunkles Purpurrot, noch schwer zugänglich, duftet nach Cassis, Pflaumen, schwarzer Pfeffer, kräftige Tannine am Gaumen, tut sich bei der Entfaltung aber noch schwer

    Het sap van deze wijn wordt verkregen door de wijn niet te persen, maar door het na de vergisting te laten afvloeien.

    De wijn: In de neus een vrij kruidige geur van zwarte peper, zwart fruit en een licht metalige ondertoon. In de mond een vrij frisse aanzet van zwarte bessen en bramen, een hintje vanille, koffie en een klein bittertje naar de afdronk. Niet complex, maar voor de prijs wederom prima in orde.

    of this wine juice is obtained by not forcing the wine, but by allowing it to flow off after the fermentation.

    The wine: The nose quite 🌶️ spicy spicy scent of black pepper, black fruits and a light metallic undertone. On the palate quite refreshing starter of black currants and blackberries, a hint of vanilla, coffee and a little bitter to the taste. Not complex, but for the price again fine.

    Untypischer Shiraz, entweder noch verschlossen oder schlichtweg gänzlich andere Machart, Frucht zwar da aber gefühlt unterdrückt, leichte Opulenz fehlt, abwarten...
    auto-translated to english
    Untypical Shiraz, either still closed or simply suppressed while there but felt completely different style, fruit, light opulence is missing, wait ...

    This is a not so special South -African made from 100%Shiraz 🍇 grapes grapes. But it is an easily drinking wine as there are so many are. The 🍇 grapes grapes are all handpicked,and after the fermentation he goes for six months in wooden barriques.
    Complex aromas of violets, black 🍒 cherry cherry, wild 🌿 herbs herbs, cloves and cassis.
    In the 👄 mouth mouth a lot of fruits with soft elegant tannins on the end.
    All in all, an everyday wine to enjoy, perhaps it brings you sunshine.

    Dry Shiraz with blackberry flavors but a bit too bitter to my liking and high on acidity. Finish is rather short. Still not too bad

    Rich fruit, loads of alcohol, the tannins saves it. Some what. OK with a juicy red steak.

    🇺🇸 Nico

    Served cool, which markedly changed the nose, reducing the spice and peppery notes in this Shiraz, allowing some green and vegetal notes to come forward. Often judged as a fault, they were pleasant enough here. Lavas, fresh peas, green pepper, cassis (very subdued) with a hint of anise. Becomes a more classic Shiraz when the 👄 mouth mouth warms it, brining forth some spice and black pepper. Simple basic Shiraz, made a little more interesting by cooling.

    Ikke så frugtrig og en smule mere bitter end jeg fortrækker Shiraz. En del syre. Er den ok til prisen - hvis jeg gav 70kr for den så ja. Gav jeg 100kr for den, så kan jeg komme på en del andre vine jeg hellere ville have drukket

    Not as fruity and slightly more bitter than I prefer Shiraz. Part acid. Is it ok for the price - if I gave 70kr for it then yes. I gave 100kr for it so I can get on some other 🍷 wines wines I would rather have drunk
