Deep ruby in colour with a sensual burgundy rim, the appearance of this wine is just as enticing as what awaits in the glass. The full, confident aromas one associates with Shiraz have been perfectly balanced in this stunning vintage. With its exquisite flavours of blackberry and plum followed by a mature, fruity tannin with a long and enjoyable finish with elegant flavours of white pepper and French oak, the Mischa Estate Shiraz 2019 is the epitome of the essence of Shiraz. Drink it tonight or age it for 5 – 12 years, you won’t go wrong. However, whenever you do decide to drink it, get the most out of it by enjoying a lamb, beef or chicken roast with dark chocolate for dessert.

VITICULTURAL ANALYSIS

We harvest our Shiraz 2019 from an old vineyard. Most importantly, this particular vineyard produces a very limited crop with a more delicate fruit. Therefore, Mischa Estate produces a Shiraz that competes at the highest level. At Mischa we use French and American oak to mature our Shiraz. However, not so much as to extract too many wood flavours. As a result, we allow the fruit to to speak for itself in this excellent, award-winning wine.
