2014 Boulder Road Shiraz
A fragrant and attractively fresh nose of brambleberries, spices, cinnamon, licorice and tar. The palate has all the dark plummy fruit you would expect, but it's delivered in a compact package that is supported by firm tannins and pretty acidity. Drink now. Rating: 91-91 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com (Jun 2018)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
The Dombeya range comes from a 23 hectare property in the Helderberg, the sought-after sub-region of Stellenbosch. The estate also makes the 'Haskell Vineyards' range, named after owner preston Haskell. Dombeya was the original name for the estate, taken from a wild pear tree which grows locally.
Founding winemaker Rianie Strydom, who developed the wines here, has now passed over the winemaking to Rudolph Steenkamp, who joined as winemaker and vineyard manager in June 2018. Rudolph has been four years as assistant winemaker at Groot Constantia, and has also worked in France.
Put a little spice into your Yuletide and a warming peppery tingle on your tongue. It’ll keep out the winter chill and liven up dinner table.
