In this episode, we taste Shiraz wine from South Africa.
In this, the first part of the episode, we taste an organic Shiraz, the Stella Organics Star Catcher.
Grown on the semi-arid landscape of the Western Cape the grapes are subjected to the hot midday sun followed by chilly nights helping to give the wine it’s taste profile.
The wine has a little purple in it’s colour.
On the nose, it smells of Cherries and John M detected some blackcurrant.
On the taste, the blackcurrant was not so obvious but the cherry was still very much there.
John M felt the wine was slightly light which made it “juicy” but not a wine to sit down to and enjoy, more of a wine to enjoy while chatting to friends.
