A very limited volume wine made from low-yielding dry-land bush vines. It has a deep, dark purple colour with succulent ripe fruit flavours, both dark and red, which are supported by scents of violets and delicate spice. The mouth-feel has depth and clarity of fruit with integrated oak flavours, finely crafted tannins and a beautifully layered fruit-infused finish.
Made by one of South Africa’s most highly regarded Shiraz specialists, the Weathered Hands Shiraz shows a rare balance of intensity and finesse, with concentrated fruit and distinctive aromatics.
