Catoria Coastal Blend 2017

Superb Shiraz - made especially for our Angels

    • Carmen is one of South Africa's finest wine makers, as one taste of her superb Shiraz - made especially for our Angels - quickly illustrates.
    • South Africa may have come late to the Shiraz ball, but it's played catch up quickly, and now produces some of the best in the world. This one, with its dark, rich plum fruit punch and smokey oaky, peppery finish is a delicious example.
    • Punchy, explosive and with all the weight of a dozen half-backs, the only way to improve this wine is to drink it with a bit of cow that has been briefly shown the grill. A meat-eater's idea of heaven in a glass.

Local food match
Shiraz is one of the most forgiving wines in terms of food pairings. South African Shiraz is your typical BBQ wine because of the spicy expression of the varietal but this wine also pairs well with any cured meats even dark chocolate.
