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 displays a distinct bouquet of rose petals, melon, strawberries and raspberries coulis. The palate is well rounded but refreshingly vibrant, packed with red fruit and finishes with a delightful flowery undertone.
