This savory, Rhône-inspired Shiraz combines juicy flavors of wild berry, black cherry, and brambly fruit with elements of earth, dark chocolate, pepper, and exotic spice. Pair this lip smacking bottling - a perennial "Best Buy"/ "Best Value" with grilled or braised meats, game dishes, or roast leg of lamb with Provencal spices.
With 14 months in oak, there’s some beautiful mocha and clove spice throughout that integrates beautifully with the dark cherry, bramble, licorice and meaty notes on the nose and palate. The texture is creamy and the flavors full, with firm tannins and a good kick of black pepper on the long finish. Could use some time to balance out; try in a year or two.
Launched in 1996, Rustenberg’s second label is named in honor of Brampton Beacon Bloomer, the farm’s champion Jersey bull who established a top quality dairy cow dynasty at Rustenberg. The Brampton range is all about mouth-filling, fruit-forward wines that are accessible, easy-to-drink, and sure to please. The brand regularly receives "Best Buy" and "Best Value" accolades in major wine publications such as Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, and Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar.
