MENU's Wine of the Week. KWV 2012 The Mentors Shiraz

The wine we enjoyed with this week's recipe was from our cellar, but Lynne spoke to Izelle van Blerk, the winemaker, today and it is still available from the KWV Emporium

Light smoky oak, ripe cherries and berries, incense and minerality with pepper and cinnamon spice on the nose. Silky on the rich palate, complex with beautify bruléed fruit, black pepper warmth, some herbal notes and a long finish with dark coffee wood on the end. All the grapes are from Paarl and the wine spent 18 months in oak. A classy wine perfect for venison and other rich spicy dishes
