The Cellarmaster's Reserve Tasting

Winter is Red Wine Time!

During June we bottled the Dekker's Valley 2015 Revelation and the 2014 Shiraz, just in time for winter. 

Revelation 2015

The 2015 blend consists of 54% Shiraz, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Tempranillo.

This wine is medium to full bodied showing great berry flavours with marinated cherries and spice. It is a complex wine that is perfect for those cold winter days and/or evenings in front of the fire. The wine was matured with French oak for one year. Drink this wine now or keep for five years, although we find, if previous vintages are anything to go by, it will be hard to keep from drinking!

Shiraz 2014

100% Shiraz - a medium bodied wine with mulberry flavours and spice. The wine was matured in older French oak barrels for three years. A perfect casserole winter wine. 

Winter is Red Wine Time!
