Luddite, Shiraz 2017 Bottle size: 750mlSouth Africa, Botriver
'Incredibly dark plummy in colour with purple tones towards the edges. Floral, sweet fruit, cinnamon, touch of vanilla and a hint of fynbos on the nose. Palate has bold juicy fruit on entry with fresh tannin grip on mid-pallet followed by dark, spicy fruit. The finish is long and invitingly decadent.' – Niels Verburg, Winemaker

|Producer information||In 1999 Niels and Penny Verburg established their own wine farm on the slopes of the Houw Hoek Mountains in Bot River. They named their farm Luddite, meaning ‘someone who is resistant to new technology or new ways of working’. This definition captures their winemaking philosophy perfectly as Niels is constantly striving to create perfect wines despite the challenging conditions thrown his way. Niels and his team at Luddite are incredibly passionate about their Shiraz and are never willing to compromise on quality. This dedication translates into consciously-farmed grapes and small-batch wines that have amazing character.|
