Saxenburg Frogitt & Vonkel Release Shiraz 2017
“An ultra-premium, exclusive Shiraz produced exclusively for our F&V customers.”
R510.00 per bottle (South Africa)
The grapes were hand-picked from selected parcels within three different blocks.
The juice was left on the skins for 28 days and then transferred to French oak barrels, where it spent 24 months. (60% new)
The palate is beautifully structured but seamless, elegant, and full of dimension.
This is an incredibly complex, yet fantastically balanced Shiraz and showcases how well the variety is suited to Saxenburg.
Drinking beautifully on release, but will reward cellaring for 10 years or more.
