MENU’s Wine of the Week is Middelvlei 2017 Shiraz

This was our favourite wine of the Vintage tasting held at Middelvlei

Rich cherry, raspberry, strawberry fruit, like a summer pudding, with some spice and black pepper on the nose. Rounded and deep on the palate, full of cherry berry summer pudding or fruit jelly flavours initially, then the kick of alcohol gives almost Romtopf complexity. Delicious. It finishes with some cumin and cinnamon spice. Drinking beautifully now and undoubtedly will age well . A great Shiraz for complex food, including game, meat and dishes from foreign shores like Morocco, Mexico and India
