SSS 2007 Magnum

R4,230.00

The Saxenburg Shiraz Select 2007 is an intense example of Shiraz, which develops more interest with time in the glass. Ripe, slightly jammy, black and blueberries are prominent, with hints of dried herbs and green olives that eventually opens up to notes of dried lavender. The tannins are firm, structured, but slightly abrupt, with prominent acidity.

1.5L Magnum.


This extraordinary wine has been stored and matured under optimal conditions in our Vinotéque, for you to get the very best out of your fine wine experience.
