FAT BARREL Stellenbosch Shiraz 2014

WINEMAKER’S COMMENT: On the nose, spicy notes of licorice, black pepper, coriander and fynbos (a native herb that grows on our farm alongside the grapevines) combine with fresh aromas of dark berries and butterscotch. The multi-layered and gripping palate is very well balanced and lingers, with hints of plums and meaty-savoury nuances.
