The Shiraz vineyards of Zandvliet are planted mainly in the direction of the prevailing winds, on the gentle slopes of the foothills south of the Cogmans river flowing through the estate. The clayey soils are limestone-rich contributing salty, mineral characters and elegance to the wine. Zandvliet Shiraz, because of some of these attributes, remains one of South Africa’s favourite red table wines.
The wine introduces you to a ripe complex nose showing flavours of plums, blackcurrants and pepper with hints of mixed spice. These deep flavours follow through to a seamless, supple and complex palate with added hints of dark chocolate.
