Backsberg Pumphouse Shiraz 2017

Backsberg Pumphouse Shiraz 2017

Produced from intensely concentrated Shiraz grapes, this wine exhibits a wonderful velvety depth. Black cherry and mulberry notes give way to hints of aniseed and vanilla, which are derived from maturation in small French - and just a few American - barriques.

Pair with savoury dishes such as roast game and winter stews match this dark, brooding wine.
