Boschendal Black Angus Shiraz Blend 2017 75cl 14% ABV
Boschendal Black Angus Shiraz Blend, Western Cape, South Africa
The Black Angus is named in homage to the cattle, and is a blend of Shiraz, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. This is the original estate blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon that Boschendal launched in the 1980s under the Grand Reserve label.
First impression of berry and plum aromas layered with winter spice and roast cacao bean complexity. The entry is smooth and rich leading to sumptuous ripe mulberry, black cherry and cassis flavours etched with black pepper and oak spice on the palate. The finish is long and moreish, with tremendous texture and lingering fruit concentration. It is a taste immersion worth savouring, and returning to.
