Wine Region : Cape Town, South Africa
Grape : Shiraz
The wine portrays a bright purple colour with a deep violet rim. Peppery spices, cassis and fruit cake merges well with Karoo shrub notes and scented violet notes on the nose. The palate expresses red fruit, soft fused tannins and a savoury, luscious finish.
About the Winery
The De Grendel cellar sits majestically elevated on the fynbos-covered slopes of the Tygerberg with a postcard-perfect panorama of Table Mountain and the city of Cape Town.
It was built in accord with its surroundings, with tones of sand and slate combining both traditional and contemporary materials. Although modern in design, it references the colonial architecture of the main house, with its deep shaded stoep and big arched windows to take in the views, sea breezes and the views of the dam below.
De Grendel is not a terroir winemaker, preferring to blend wines from different regions to create our award-winning wines. Our grapes are harvested from two principal vineyards.
