Winemaker's Notes

Cape Indaba was founded as a celebration of the newly unified nation with its wines representing the spirit of the historic changes. In keeping with South Africa's spirit of reconciliation and development, Cape Classics established the Cape Indaba Scholarship Fund to benefit the education of under privileged South Africans interested in viticulture and winemaking. The trust is funded entirely through worldwide sales of Cape Indaba wines.

Cape Indaba's Shiraz is made in a style that showcases the peppery/smoky richness of the grape. Cape Indaba purchases the fruit for this 100% Shiraz from some of the best growers and finest vineyards in the Western Cape (Western Cape is a ‘Wine of Origin', what we know as an Appellation). Its aromas of red berries and cherries flow into a light-bodied, rich mouthful of spicy, well-structured, robust fruit. Silky smooth tannins and a swath of vanilla on the finish complete the wine. Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, declared this wine an "excellent value" and "delicious."
