SA Rochester Western Cape Shiraz Viognier Reserve

Winemaking and viticulture are the family passions which dates back to 1697 when the first De Wet settler in South Africa was appointed cellarmaster of the Dutch East India Company.

This sultry red is a Reserve-level very special wine, red grape mixed with a hint of white grape.  The Viognier adds a great floral note that balances the Shiraz nicely.
