Private Colleciton Shiraz 2000
From a warm, generous vintage, this wine has incredible fruit density. Loads of pepper and spice can be found on the nose, beautifully supported by stewed red fruit. The tannins are fine, mouth-coating and supportive of the wonderful structure.
Private Collection Pinotage 2000
The Saxenburg Private Collection Pinotage 2000 is incredible youthfulness for a wine of 20 years old! Beautifully concentrated fruit on the nose – expect ripe cherries, blackberries and a tightly packed palate. This wine has a real balance to it, and the finish is long and seamless. One would be forgiven to mistake this for a beautifully matured Pinot noir! Be patient and allow this wine to open up before serving.
Private Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2000
The nose shows loads of tomato and bay leaves, ripe stewed red berries and a hint of ash. Some tertiary development adds interest and a perception of sweetness. The palate has been held together beautifully by a fresh acidity and tight, grainy tannins. Decant before serving, as this wine opens up beautifully with time in the glass. A stellar 20-year-old Cab.
