Vinification Details

  • The majority of this wine is fermented at a low temperature to retain the fruity, black berry notes of the Shiraz but a small percentage is fermented in oak barrels. This oaked element gives a dark, smoky, spicy dimension to the wine.

History

  • Our wines are all grown and produced by a dynamic team of neighbouring farmers, all co-owners of the FirstCape brand. We believe this is the best way to guarantee the quality of FirstCape, as they care more about the wines from the vine to the shelf.

Regional Information

  • Our FirstCape wines are all made from grapes grown in the Western Cape of South Africa, throughout the beautiful Breede River Valley just an hour's drive from Cape Town.

Thoroughly enjoyed by my dinner party guests who disappointingly drank the whole case! Will have to watch out for it when the next round of offers comes along.

A very drinkable full bodied red

A very drinkable, very reasonably priced red. The case I bought disappeared very quickly as a recent party and was commented upon very favourably.

wonderfully smooth

5 stars

this is a particularly smooth and fruity Shiraz and we love it. Price can be prohibitive but when on offer it's our first choice. Enjoy

Excellent wine

Full bodied and excellent colour. Full flavour rich and spicy, and ideal wine to serve with all meats and salads Always buy South African wine.

Sorry 'not my cup of tea'

Good colour, good body and seems well made, but not smooth enough and peppery enough for me, sharper, lighter with almost a cherry after taste? Sorry
