Stellenzicht Golden Triangle Shiraz 2012 - 6 x 750ml
Planted between 1989 and 2005, the ten vineyards bearing the fruit from which this wine was blended are grown on slopes facing west and northwest in soils of decomposed granite and Table Mountain sandstone.
The 2012 vintage can best be described as cool, dry and windy and this resulted in supplementary irrigations being critical. Thankfully the cooler temperatures lack of humidity resulted in a long ripening period with very good, healthy fruit being harvested at average yields of 5.3 tonnes per hectare.
Colour: Bright ruby of deep intensity and with long, slow legs.
Nose: Complex array of sweet plum, ripe cherry, almonds, cinnamon and salty-liquorice combine with caramel and floral violet all backed up by an rich, earthiness.
Taste: Medium-full bodied, the wine shows a classic, elegant dryness with sweet fruitiness encapsulated by nutty almonds and hazelnut in the middle, well-balanced structure and firm acidity. The end is lengthy with the natural sweetness returning to the palate a few seconds after swallowing.
Food pairing: Earthy dishes pair well with the favourites being: traditional, spicy Boerewors with chunky mash and rich, dark gravy; steak and kidney pie; biltong risotto; game carpaccio with juniper berries and clear biltong bisques.
For the vegetarians, a sweet chickpea and lentil curry with dried apricots will do really well.
