Gustus Shiraz 2019
Darling Cellars is situated on the west coast of South Africa between Malmesbury and Darling. The cool and temperate west coast climate lends itself to a different micro and mesoclimate which, along with the different types of soil, lead to unique grapes, which are then guided into unique wines. The Gustus range was developed specifically to showcase wines that are terroir and varietal specific. The Gustus Shiraz 2019 is an elegant and expressive fruit driven red wine, exhibiting hints of mushroom truffle and clover. A sweet palate is complimented by subtle oaking and a fine tannin structure which lingers on the palate. A beautiful wine that will reward those who cellar carefully, however, can be enjoyed whenever the occasion allows.
Pairs well with a beef casserole, braised pork neck, oxtail stew, bolognaise, Biltong & Bobotie (South African favourites!) or any venison dishes.
