Drink it now or cellar for up to 10 years. It is recommended to decant it for half an hour.

The De Grendel winery was born from the intuition of the owner, Sir David Graaff, who decided to add the wine business to the already established farm. In just a few years, the winery has established itself as a key figure in the South African wine industry with an impressive list of awards.

The Shiraz grapes for this first-rate wine have been selected and hand-picked to ensure an optimal degree of ripeness. They were then fermented in open steel tanks upon arrival in the cellar. The wine then matured for 13 months in a combination of 10% new American oak and 10% new French oak and 80% in second and third passage barrels.

De Grendel Shiraz is a wine with a splendid intense ruby red color with inclusions of violet in the glass. On the nose, it releases floral aromas of fragrant violets as well as captivating hints of spice of fine pepper, cassis and Christmas fruit cake, complemented by a hint of shrub undertones. On the palate, the wine opens with hints of black fruits that seduce the senses, enclosed in full-bodied and silky chocolaty tannins, which develop in a floral finish seasoned with notes of mulberry. This exceptionally elegant concentrated wine masterfully balances deliciously sweet black fruit with a beautifully structured tannic structure and subtle spices. It works beautifully with game pies and venison.
