The palate is soft, sumptuous, juicy and round with elegant tannins and lots of berry fruit. This wine will compliment food such as a rack of lamb with a mint dressing or even a thickly cut fillet of beef.
Produced from intensely concentrated shiraz grapes, Pumphouse Shiraz exhibites a wonderful velvety depth. Black cherry and mulberry otes give way to hints of aniseed and vanilla, which are derived from maturation in small French - and just a few American - barriques.
The Pumphouse, located high up on the Backwsberg property, is a humble concrete structure which plays an imperative role in day-to-day activities. The building epitomises Backsberg's approach to winemaking, unassuming but extraordinary.
Deep violet-ruby colour, floral, smoky, prune, black olive and spice aromes. Medium- to full-bodied with rich dark berry flavours and a long finish.
An historic 18th century wine farm, Groote Post is located nearby Darling, less than an hours drive from Cape Town on the West Coast of South Africa. An oasis of calm and serenity, the cellar has consistently produced a range of award winning wines from cool climatic conditions. The Pentz family extend a warm invitation to experience their wonderful wines and to visit the award winning restaurant Hilda's Kitchen when next in the fairest cape.
