Cederberg Merlot Shiraz 2015

Cederberg Merlot Shiraz 2015 from high altitude vineyards

Tasting Notes

Apr 2018 - The nose of the 2015 Cederberg Merlot Shiraz offers up engaging plum and red currant fruit that displays nice lift and freshness with a light spice and smoky component aromatically. Medium fuller bodied this is supple in texture with good depth to the dark plum flavors that are backed by finer grained, almost powdery tannins. This has engaging fruit that is fresh and layered, showcasing good palate presence and an impressive juicy tart and sweet interplay. This is drinking nicely and should show well over the next couple of years.

Awards, Reviews and other Notes

89 pts Vinous/Stephen Tanzer May 2017
(14.5% alcohol): Cassis, wild herbs, pepper and spices on the nose. At once plush and alive in the mouth, conveying a fine-grained texture and lovely juicy intensity to its flavors of cassis, plum and spices. Very rich, concentrated and sweet for this bottling, and firmly tannic and persistent on the finish. Clearly riper and denser than the 2014 version, showing a lovely ripe, pliant middle and the superiority of the 2015 vintage. Already quite sexy.

Winemaker Notes

A fantastic blend of 69% merlot and 31% shiraz. Sweet plums and blackcurrants from the merlot and cherries and spice from the shiraz. A wine that is very accessible and smooth with fruity flavours lingering on the palate. This red blend is a must with every braai, but also suited to rich game dishes.
