Backsberg Pumphouse Shiraz

$39.95 aud

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.

Leopards Leap Pinotage Shiraz

Based in Franschhoek, in the heart of South Africa's wine district, Leopard's Leap crafts its wines from the finest grapes picked from the best vineyards in the Cape winelands, home to the magnificent Cape Mountal Leopard. Soft and medium-bodied this wine reflects the distinctive characteristics of both varietals in the blend. Plum and mulberry flavours are supported by vanilla undertones while the character is spicy and peppery, with a firm tannin structure. An ideal companion with oxtail, roast pork or hearty stews, as well as liver, quiche or cold meats. Leopard's Leap is also a proud sponsor of The Cape Leopard Trust, which seeks to protect the magnificent Cape Mountain Leopard. The endangered leopards make their home in part of the Cape winelands.
