Paarl Heights Shiraz

A warm, spicy nose with fruit cake and ripe plum aromas with smokey notes. The palate is richly flavoured and structured with concentrated black fruit and spicy, white pepper characters.

The red grapes produced and harvested for the Paarl Heights Shiraz are from Malmesbury shale. This is a dense soil type with clay that has a good water retention ability so its very suitable for later ripening varieties. The soils drains very easily, as excess water has unlimited drainage opportunities between the ‘bedding planes’ or layers of shale. The vines are never in the situation where they can sit back and enjoy life as they are forced to push their roots down in search of water. The wine is produced from only free run juice and fermented on the skins in stainless steel tanks. The wine is left on the lees for an extended period for greater palate weight and mouthfeel.

Great with barbecued red meats, paella or spicy sausages.

Boutinot South Africa is driven by a passion for discovery and desire to capture the real essence of South Africa in every bottle. It was the simple love of Loire Chenin Blanc that first led them to South Africa in 1994, where they pioneered the wild ferment style that has now been adopted by many producers in this region. They use a combination of knowledge, a love of nature and science to create versatile, expressive and food-friendly wines from a country that has been making wine for 360 years. The key is knowing the characteristics of each plot, understanding the benefits each cultivar can bring, breaking rules and pushing boundaries.

Since then they have been exploring the country’s amazing vineyards to make fabulous wines from specific sites and plots that scream location, location, terroir.. Their home-grown South African winemaking team of JD Rossouw and Ryno Booysen drive the energy and enthuasiam for expressing the loveliest wines from their country, along with Samantha Bailey’s expertise in finesse.
