Raka 'Biography' Shiraz 2015 Double Gold Michelangelo International Wine & Spirits Awards 2017

Tasting Notes

Oct 2018 - The 2015 Raka Shiraz aromatically is loaded up with notions of white pepper, sweet cloves, nutmeg, under brush and licorice meshing into dark plum fruit notes. Medium fuller bodied, this has a plump, fleshy mid palate with dark fruit flavors that are nuanced with pepper and earth tones that lead to a refined finish that has nice length with the tannins in perfect balance with the fruit. Just now opening up this should drink impressively over the next 3-4 years.

Winemaker Notes

Dark purply red in colour with white pepper interlaced with sweet cloves, nutmeg and hints of fynbos and liquorice. On the pallet there is plump and dark fruit enveloped in pepper and earthy tones with a long elegant finish with balanced tannins and hints of red plum.
