Grape: Shiraz. Region: South Africa> Western Cape.
A more fun style than your typical Shiraz, this fresh, fruity, semi-sweet wine displays aromas and flavors of ripe, juicy berries with dark chocolate undertones. The perfect balance between sweetness and acidity makes for a refreshing approachability. Great for a date night by the fire with your sweetheart; mixed in a batch of sangria for a backyard summer bash; when your Monday just didn’t go right, or Tuesday. It is versatile food wine, best served lightly chilled (chill in fridge for 10 minutes to about 55 degrees before serving.)
Food pairing: barbecue, medium soft cheeses (cheddar), smoked meats, cheese burgers, spice-rubbed meats, spicy sauces, etc.
