Koelfontein, Shiraz, Ceres, 2016

In Stock Now!

This terrific Shiraz, given 20 months in new French barrels, is spectacular and has garnered a slew of medals in the local wine competions: Veritas and Michelangelo golds and a double gold in the Vitis Vinifera. Youthful purple. Ripe black fruit and coffee aromatics. So bold and vibrant, a gorgeous sweet cassis gush, but also brightened by juicy acidity and backed by plentiful ripe tannins. Very long. Cries out for beef or lamb, grilled or roasted. Now-2023

The Conradie family, the seventh generation farmers who own Koelfontein, have abundant orchards, but they also own the only vineyard in the Ceres Plateau district, just six hectares split between Chardonnay and Shiraz on the steep, south facing slopes of the Gydo pass just north of Prince Albert Hamlet.   

The family launched their own wine label in 2002. They currently employ Dewaldt Heyns, winemaker at famed Saronsberg in nearby Tulbagh and one of the elected Cape Winemasters Guild, to make these tiny production wines. The style is unabashedly new world, ripe, big and bold and well-oaked: we’re excited to introduce this duo to the UK market.
