Backsberg Pumphouse Shiraz 2006

Backsberg Pumphouse Shiraz 2006

Pumphouse Shiraz is a specially crafted cuvée based on varietal character and intensity. Black cherry, raspberry fruits and rich mocha aromas 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.
