Fruit forward elegance abounds in Grande Provence Shiraz 2010

Issued by: GC Communications  On behalf of: Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate         

Savour a mouthful of ripe blackberries and plum with the just released Grande Provence Shiraz 2010, a full bodied red that holds the promise of an unforgettable tasting experience, whether enjoying a glass at home or visiting this lush Franschhoek estate.

Winemaker Karl Lambour notes that warm days and limited rainfall provided perfect growing conditions for the 2010 crop, resulting in small berries of concentrated flavours. The wine was oak matured for 15 months and flaunts a fruit forward character with delicate white pepper nuances on the nose and palate, elegant soft tannins and a luxurious finish. 

“Our Shiraz is perfect to enjoy now, but will also age beautifully for three to five years in the cellar. It is a superb taste partner for smoked meats and charcuterie, game dishes and red meat with an intense pepper sauce,” adds Karl.

The Grande Provence Shiraz 2010 sells for R140 at the Grande Provence Tasting Room, and can also be found at leading wine shops and fine dining restaurants. For added convenience, this wine can be purchased online from Purchases of 12 bottles or more qualify for free delivery anywhere in South Africa.
