The juice of the Viognier is blended with the skins of Shiraz prior to fermentation to achieve a bright red wine with purple hues.
If you were blindfolded, you'd swear it was a white wine in the glass.
Dry, light bodied with fine, soft tannins and a silky textured mouthfeel. Despite the dominance of the Viognier, the lesser amount of Shiraz gives the palate an elegant plush feel with its dark fruit and vanilla character. Lingering stone fruit flavours on the close.
Another high bar set by the creative winemakers at Cape Jaffa Wines. Ground breaking, envelope-pushing, cutting edge, hip and chic. Give this one time in the fridge for maximum freshness and enjoyment. Recommended.
