Beau Joubert

Fat Pig Beau Joubert Fortified Shiraz

£19.50

Named in honor of Beau Joubert’s most unlikely sommelier – the friendly pig named “ihagu” (Xhosa for “pig”) who always managed to nibble the vineyard’s sweetest and most exceptional grapes during harvest – the Fat Pig is similarly crafted with only the best red grapes we have to offer. Smooth and slightly dry with a well-rounded body that lingers on the palate after each sip, this fortified dessert wine finishes with a pleasant nuttiness. Traces of red-fruit acid onto firm but silky tannins help to balance this vintage wine, making it perfect for rustic fares, pairing for cheese courses or on its own, as an after-dinner treat. Best served at 15°C (60°F)

This Cape Vintage was barrelled for 36 months, hand-bottled and labelled with the utmost care. 

Deep crimson in colour, with ripe fruit aromas balanced by hints of dried fruits and nuts, this wine has a slightly dry, elegant and smooth sensation on the palate. Stored correctly it can cellar comfortably for up to 20 years.
