There is an old sign as you head into Riebeek Kasteel from Hermon that reads “Welcome to Shiraz country”. It was true many moons ago and is still just as true today. The vision of winemaker, Thinus Krüger, is to make a wine that will focus on freshness, and show lively fruit, ranging from red cherry to the black savouriness of liquorice. Shiraz from a vineyard on the eastern side of Malmesbury, sandy granite soils. 5% each of Grenache noir and Mourvedre added to the final blend.
