A warm welcome to Glen Carlou, situated in the heart of South Africa’s scenic Paarl Valley. The warm, dry summers and cold, wet winters of this area combine with an exciting variety of slopes and the riches of our soils to create unique winegrowing conditions. Glen Carlou was established in 1985 and since 2003 has been successfully owned and run by Hess Family Estates. To harness our farm’s vast winegrowing potential, our vines are meticulously selected in terms of rootstock and clone, while every variety is carefully chosen for its compatibility to the terroir. Yields are kept rigorously low, ensuring that nature’s gifts are distilled in the flavourful grapes that we harvest. And in the cellar our winemaker Arco Laarman and his team join forces with nature to create three distinctive wine ranges. Read less

Very impressed by this. Deep dark ruby colour and bold dark fruit with hints of oak, spice, a little smoke and pepper and large amounts of depth. Tannins are a little strong and a bit of residue left behind but overall an excellent SA Syrah for a reasonable price.

A bold juicy wine. Great flavour - jammy fruits of the forest, mainly red currant and blue berry. Excellent stuff. Not what you call a sophisticated wine, but very drinkable none the less. Only slightly tannic, but also little acidity. 14.5% alcohol. Would probably keep for 3 or 4 years. We paid £14, which is a fair price.

This syrah is freaking awesome! Huge meaty notes, dark fruits, yet somehow manages bright acidity. Great example of South Africa blending old and new world styles brilliantly.

August 2009, really disappointing, I keeping this wine for a special occasion as it was one of the medium expensive in my trip to South Africa, but as I was checking corks in my cellar, this was starting to rotten. Th glass is also weirdly dark with deposits over it. If you have it don't keep, drink asap.

Syrah 2006 - Glen Carlou: Diesen Rotwein sollten Sie unbedingt probieren, er ist einer der besten Shiraz-Weine Südafrikas.Das Glas wird von einem intensiven Violett erfüllt. Das ausdrucksstarke Bukett betört mit Aromen von dunklen, würzigen Beerenfrüchten und Röstnoten. Sein kräftiger und komplexer Charakter entsteht durch die einjährige Fassreife in amerikanischen und französischen Eichenfässern. Am Gaumen präsentiert er einen Reichtum an reifen Früchten, wie schwarzen Johannisbeeren, die mit den  Gewürznoten einen beeindruckenden saftigen Körper entstehen lassen. Das Finale ist lang und satt. Dieser Rotwein passt perfekt zu Barbecue mit süßlichen Saucen, dunklem Fleisch oder Cheddar. Er sollte eine Stunde vor dem Genuss geöffnet werden.Weingut: Glen CarlouAnbauregion: PaarlRebsorte: 94% Shiraz, 5% Mourvedre, 1% ViognierInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,9 g/lRestsüße: 2,9 g/lFassreife: in Barriques gereift (12 Monate)Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18 °CLagerfähigkeit: 7-10 Jahre ab JahrgangAuszeichnungen:4,5 Platter StarsVeritas SilberMichelangelo GoldMundus Vini Gold Rotwein > Südafrika > Paarl - Franschhoek
