The Wine Box
Percheron Shiraz Mourvedre 75cl
This wine is made of 70% Shiraz, from the Riebeek Valley vineyards co fermented with 27% Mourvedre and 3% Viognier from the Kasteelberg slopes. During fermentation the skin cap is punched down multiple times a day in order to maximize extraction. The result is a rich and dark wine, packed with fruit and chocolaty notes and a big savoury heart.
Co-fermented Shiraz and Viognier do their thing whilst waiting for the later Mourv√®dre to create this threesome. The sandy nose suggests summer pudding, Chinese 5 spice and crushed raspberries with a latent creaminess. Red fruit on the palate which is at once vibrant and dark.
A great partner to rich and savoury red meat dishes such as salt-marsh lamb, or a gutsy bean casserole.
