LDP Wine of the Week- Stellenzicht Golden Triangle Shiraz

March 4, 2014

The wine’s rich, intense colour shows hues of ruby and garnet, and faint tinges of purple around the edges. Plummy liquorice with touches of star-anise, freshly-roasted nuts and white pepper are displayed on the nose. Juicy on the palate with loads of ripe, red and black berry-fruit flavours. Soft, rich and elegant throughout with an exceptionally classy finish. Very enjoyable while young but further cellaring will enhance complexity. Cellaring of eight to twelve years is recommended.
