User Reviews for Spice Route Shiraz Blend Swartland Malabar

Winemaker's Notes:

**Gold Medal - Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2010** The history and culture of the Cape of Good Hope is inexorably connected to the trade in exotic spices and slaves, Malabar is named after the town on the spice coast of Southern India which played an important role in the Spice Route. All the grapes are hand picked from old bush trained vines into small boxes before being chilled. The resulting wine is deep crimson in colour, almost opaque and highly viscous. There are powerful aromas of plums, dark chocolate, vanilla and wood spices on the nose and the palate is rich with similar red fruit, wood and creamy vanilla flavours. This is a serious wine with a muscular structure and a confident, firm finish, there are plenty of ripe tannins but these are coated well with the sumptuous fruit to create a thought provoking, complex wine of great character. This wine will dominate the flavours in a food match unless it is paired with full flavoured and full bodied dishes, red meat such as venison, duck, ostrich or kangaroo are perfect and so is cheese - try a wild boar risotto or platter of mixed mature hard and soft cheeses.
