Shiraz Select

Icon Wine

Saxenburg Shiraz Select

Where it all started

Adrian Bührer had the vision to produce an icon wine to best represent Saxenburg and South African wines, locally and internationally. He then decided to produce word-class Shiraz to compete with wines from countries like France and Australia, where this varietal dominated.


This was the start of the rewarding journey of creating the Shiraz Select collection. From the vineyard to the cellar, our tenacity and intent will always be to continue producing this particular fine wine collection with passion and attentiveness.

A piece of history

Upon its first release in 1998, the wine was considered the most expensive of its kind at R350 per bottle in South Africa.

Later on, it was also the first bottle of wine ever to sell for R500 per bottle in South Africa.
