Shiraz, Excelsior 2013
The nose shows prominent aromas of dark cherry and sweet violet, with additional notes of pepper. The palate is soft and juicy, with freshness and a long finish.
For 60 years the Excelsior land was grazed by thoroughbred horses because of the ‘limestone‘ rich soils which contribute to bone strength.
These soils have also been found to be highly beneficial to grape growing as the grapes from these vineyards display greater spice notes in reds than what is typically found in the Robertson region. 2012 was a dry and warm vintage and produced some of the best quality grapes ever seen in Robertson.
