Robertson Winery 'Number 1 Constitution Road'

Shiraz, 2008

South Africa Red

Robertson 75cl

It has been a while and we've skipped at least one vintage but welcome back to this luxury and good value styled Shiraz.
Harvested at the end of March 2008 then carefully hand sorted. The remaining grapes were fermented in tank initially prior to malolactic fermentation in oak then matured in a mixture of French oaks for a whopping 32 months. Genuinely small production with about 1,200 cases produced.
Plenty of colour and a sweet and rich nose of fruit crumble and soft vanilla oak. Despite only being recently released it's very soft and drinkable with lots of black fruit and a black pepper spice softened by the languish in oak. Thankfully not marred by any leafy/green/herbal character that can make RSA Shiraz unpleasant. If it was from South Australia you could probably stick 10 on the retail ( don't get any ideas)
