Co-fermented Shiraz and Viognier do their thing whilst waiting for the later Mourvèdre to create this threesome. A bright, sandy nose that suggests summer pudding, Chinese 5 spice and crushed raspberries with a latent creaminess. Red fruit on the palate which is at once vibrant and dark.

Grapes for Percheron Shiraz Mourvedre has been sourced from traditional growers in the Swartland area of the Cape. The soil is mainly Malmsbury shale with loamy soil on the higher grounds and sandy loam lower down the slopes, interspersed with rich Hutton soils. The climate is perfect for viticulture with the low rainfall summer months, tempered by cool afternoon breezes and the cold winters allowing the vines to rest and to build up the reserves. This wine is made of 70% Shiraz, from the Riebeek Valley vineyards co fermented with 27% Mourvèdre and 3% Viognier from the Kasteelberg slopes. During fermentation the skin cap is punched down multiple times a day in order to maximize extraction. The result is a rich and dark wine, packed with fruit and chocolaty notes and a big savoury heart.

A great partner to rich and savoury red meat dishes such as salt-marsh lamb, or a gutsy bean casserole.

My Favourite

I first came across this delightful wine at The Architect in Chester. I was immediately struck by the smoothness and delicious flavour, which only improved as the contents of the bottle reduced! I am no wine connoisseur, I have no idea what the individual flavours are supposed to be, I can only say that since that first experience I have kept a well-stocked supply. It goes beautifully with both fillet steak and beefburgers and is just as good to sip whilst enjoying conversation with friends. I have enjoyed many a red wine of various kinds; my only dislike being Rioja; but this Shiraz Mourvedre is exceptional. Highly recommended.

Reminiscent of northern rhone

Young syrah dominates but hints of tar and smoke from mourvedre, needs an hour+ to breathe whereapon it deepens in colour and flavour. Not as beefy as the website notes suggest, nicely perfumed and balanced. Rather good and excellent value, bordering 5*, tempted to buy a few to see how they develop.
