Backsberg Pumphouse Shiraz 2003

International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) 2006 - Bronze
Swiss International Air Lines Wine Awards 2006 - Best Value Red, Gold
Pumphouse Shiraz is a specially crafted cuvée selected on the basis of varietal character and intensity. Black cherry and raspberry fruits are given added complexity via subtle aniseed and vanillin tones derived from maturation and small French and American oak barriques.The palate has weight and depth due to layers of fruit tannins and sheer flavour intensity.

Savoury dishes such as roasted game and winter stews match this dark brooding wine perfectly.
