Catchpole & Co Tresor Epice 2012
Cool-climate hand-crafted Shiraz with a gentle kiss of Viognier.
R252.00 per bottle (South Africa)
Meaning ‘spice’ in French, this is a Shiraz crafted to express the best of South African cool-climate terroir. Using fruit exclusively from south facing vineyards (so lower yielding vines) the finest berries were selected by hand over a sorting table before being vinified in French and Hungarian oak barrels. Then the best barrels were selected and a splash of Viognier was added just before bottling to add a velvety texture and freshness to the wine. It is simply delicious and will reward careful aging for years to come.
