talks to Pierre Wahl winemaker at Rijks Private Cellar about their Shiraz

The spicy 2008 vintage shows a lively deep red colour with aromas of cinnamon sticks, black fruits and liquorice. There is a vibrant acidity with a mature and soft tannin structure, which gives this wine a well-rounded and complex palate. The fruit and character of this variety has integrated well with the oak that has been used for ageing.
