Tasting Notes

THIS WINE IS OUT OF STOCK

Barton Estate Shiraz/Cabernet 2011 has an Inviting leather and spicy blackcurrant nose, with hints of cherries and chocolate. This vintage has a forward, spicy and rich blackcurrant fruit, coupled with a touch of peppery spice on the palate.

Full-bodied, new world style with good structure, well developed tannins and great length. Excellent with game, roasts and casseroles. It is made from hand-picked grapes on the family-run Barton Estate in the hills behind Walker Bay.

The label features the Blue Crane, an endangered species, which has found a home in the family-run Barton Estate in the hills behind Walker Bay. Barton’s vineyards are at 34 degrees south near Botriver Valley on the cooler slopes of the Kogelberg Hills around 11 miles from Walker Bay. Sea breezes and the local hills help to provide a frost-free and moderately cool climate during the all important setting and ripening period.
