Ormonde Private Cellar is situated on the West Coast of South Africa, where the rugged Darling hills roll and fall along the contours of a ancient granite intrusion. These molten rocks, forced from the earth to 300m above sea level, guard the Atlantic Ocean while banks of fog roll to the foot of the hills, blessing the vineyard with coolness and moisture.
Shiraz is highly adaptable and flourishes in many wine regions of South Africa. The windy conditions on our estate leads to a small canopy, focusing the plants energy onto the grapes.
DESCRIPTION: This wine has an interesting bouquet of toasty oak, berries, spice and with savoury and liquorice, supplemented with raspberry flavour in a soft creamy palate with good balance and acidity and well integrated tannins.
STYLE: Dry Red Wine
