    Kevin Arnold Shiraz 2013

    US$37.00
    Vibrant dark fruit, earthy and clove pepper spice lead the aromatics of this Stellenbosch Shiraz, accompanied by soft plum fruit undertones. Natural acidity and the classic granular tannins are very characteristic of the voluptuous nature of a Stellenbosch Shiraz. This vintage is named after Nadine, Kevin and Heather’s daughter.


    Pre-order now for delivery in October 2017.

    Vintage Review:

    A long and cold 2012 winter, 35% more rain than usual. An excellent growing season until storm winds hit late in October (up to 118km/hr) causing excessive damage in the vineyards, crop losses of up to 60%. Odd showers during the second half of the harvest gave reds a longer hang time. Outstanding white wines, in particular Chardonnay. Red wines came out with lovely soft textures and richness.

    Cultivars:

    92% Shiraz, 6% Mourvedre, 2% Grenache Noir

    Barrel ageing:

    20 months, 225L and 500L French oak barrels
