Marvelous Shazam 2013

Red is the colour of passion. Warm and sensual, it brings the promise of pleasure. In the case of Marvelous Red, pleasure in the form of a well balanced, aromatic, wine. Spicy Syrah and succulent Cinsaut form the backbone of this wine with the inclusion of Grenache Noir, Mourvedre and Viognier for texture and aromatics. Selecting the correct sites for each variety played a critical role in determining the wine’s character, and for the 2013 blend we have the following: Syrah from the Polkadraai ward of Stellenbosch, 40 year old bushvine Cinsaut from Darling, young bushvine Grenache Noir and Mourvedre from the Piekenierskloof, and Viognier from Stellenbosch.
