The Jonkershoek Valley receives more rain than almost anywhere else in South Africa, but that hasn't negatively affected this wine. Big, chewy and warm, at 15% alcohol, this Shiraz has solid tannins and flavors of blueberry, coffee, earth and a touch of vanilla. The nose offers much of the same, with semisweet chocolate adding to the complexity. Finishes with good length and plenty of spicy fruit. Imported by Vineyard Brands.
