Saronsberg 'Provenance' Shiraz 2016

Saronsberg 'Provenance' Shiraz 2016 90 pts Tim Atkin MW

Tasting Notes

Jan 2019 - The 2016 Saronsberg Provenance Shiraz has a fruit forward nose that is nuanced with notions of pepper and cardamom spice to the red and darker fruit tones that remind of cherry, plum and currant that are given lift by a light floral touch aromatically. Medium fuller bodied, there’s an underlying acid thread that runs through the mix of red and darker red flavors giving this vibrancy to the sleek textural mouth feel. The tannins are finer tuned and nicely integrated into the fruit, giving good focusing grip to the vibrant fruit leaving a powdery, dry impression to the long finish. This is just now starting to open up and should drink impressively over the next 2-3 years.

Described by Dewaldt Heyns as “the wine that pays our bills”, this very well priced Shiraz is sweet, aromatic and supple, showing fine tannins, flavours of strawberry and blood orange and attractive oak. 2018-23.

Winemaker Notes

The soft textured tannins, full-bodied mouth-feel and silken finish lends itself as a platform for a heady mix of red berry and black fruit flavours combined with floral notes and fynbos nuances.
