De Grendel Shiraz 2017

Tasting Notes

The strength of the vintage comes forth in the 2017 De Grendel Shiraz. Following up on what was considered one of the finest ever with the 2015 vintage, 2017 came along and many feel is even better. Deep purple in color with violet hints on the rim this is forthcoming with sweet fruit to the fore nuanced with spice, white pepper and a light polished leather note along a hint of chocolate to the blackberry and sweet dark plum tones aromatically. Medium fuller to fuller bodied this is layered with dark and dark red fruit flavors that are mouth filling and rich but in nice balance with the tannins and acidity. Finishing dry and persistent this is still evolving and should show well over the next 6 plus years quite easily. For those with patience this should be a masterpiece with some extra bottle age.

Awards, Reviews and other Notes

International Wine & Spirits Competition 2019 - 97 pts- Gold Medal
Forthcoming blackberries, prunes, sweet plums, dark chocolate and coffee aromas. Fresh, dry entry, with layered blackberries, spice and cigar box culminating in a mouth-filling ripe mid-palate and a rich well-balanced finish. A popular attractive style.

Winemaker Notes

Bright purple in colour with a deep violet rim. The nose offers upfront aromas of perfume, violets, glazed gammon, pepper and buchu. The wine presents a smooth entry on the palate, with soft and seamless layers of cloves, nutmeg and warm spices, underpinned by a savoury and meaty finish.
Enjoy the Shiraz now or allow it to mature for a further 5 – 8 years.
