Market Price
To show you the value you're getting as an Angel...

Every month, we benchmark a selection of our wines against up to three comparable wines on the market. The Market Price is based on the price of those wines.

What do we mean by benchmark? We order the wines in and taste them blind against our own, or we use our market knowledge (over 30 years between us) to set an industry standard Market Price.

If you buy one of our wines and disagree with the Market Price, or it's not your cup of tea, we'll give you your money back.

About the wine

Carmen got her hands on top-end fruit to make this smooth and sumptuous medal-winning Shiraz
  • Angel funding has played a tremendous role in this wine. I was able to source top-end fruit from the best terroirs, slopes and growers.
  • This enabled me to cast my sourcing net wide over the vineyard sites and regions of Durbanville and Stellenbosch - resulting in more complex, multidimensional wines for the Angels.
  • The result is a Shiraz that stands out from the more traditional styles of Shiraz in South Africa. It shows the best of both regions without overpowering each other. A Shiraz style that is both prominent yet elegant.

Serving advice
Serve at 18-20°C. Open/Decant 30+ minutes before serving

Food match
The Catoria Shiraz 18 savoury element fused with the obvious sweet vanilla make it an ideal partner to sweet and sour chicken wings but just lovely fresh oysters.

Meet the winemaker - Carmen Stevens

  • From humble roots, Carmen blazed a trail, to become head winemaker at a prestigious winery in South Africa. Her wines won medals by the truckload, yet she couldn’t even get a bank overdraft to start her own business.
  • That was until Angel funding allowed her to finally fulfil her dream of setting up her own winery. Carmen has gone from strength to strength ever since, winning countless awards (including being voted your Winemaker of the Decade!)
  • With your support, coupled with her sheer passion and determination, Carmen is helping to create a better future for South African children. Over the past 4 years, she’s raised over half a million pounds to feed hungry school children in the slums just 30 minutes from beautiful Stellenbosch.
