Goedverwacht, Great Expectations Shiraz, Robertson, 2018

Pretty raspberry and vanilla scent. Bright berried fruit with a hint of earthiness. Excellent Syrah / Shiraz typicity. Supple and deservedly popular. Lightly oaked, it's not complicated and is a good all-rounder, supple enough to be enjoyed on its own but also gutsy enough for red meat. Now-2022

Goedverwacht translates from Afrikaans as good hope – or great expectations, hence the labelling. The du Toit family farm no less than 172 hectares of vines along the bends of the Breede river near Bonnievale. The wines are made by father Jan in collaboration with son Gawie. Jan once firmly told me his place in the world of wine in South Africa - "I farm for money, not with money" – distinguishing himself from all the supermarket owners, luxury goods merchants, bankers, jewellers or golfers who have bought wine estates in the Cape. Here there are indisputable economies of scale and modern practice, for example careful matching of variety to soil type and harvesting in the cool of the night and early morning. All three wines below benefit from a little oak influence.

The birds on the labels are blue cranes. Antropoides Paradisea is the national bird of South Africa, once commonly sighted in the Breede River Valley but now an endangered species.

Absolutely loving the sun case, what a great way to be introduced to new wines.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
