Simonsig Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2018


The 2018 vintage was really challenging due to the prolonged drought (which some believe was the worst in 100 years). The dry weather led to very healthy grapes (smaller berries with greater intensity). This fruity red blend was first introduced in 2003.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The color is a dark ruby red, and the aromas are of red berries, black currant, and spice. Youthful yet integrated tannins express the berry flavors to round off the palate. A subtle oak note lingers on the aftertaste. This wine offers an abundance of fruit and beautiful balance.

Serving Hints
Ready to drink now, but could age for a further 3- 4 years. A great accompaniment to barbecue, hamburgers, meaty pizzas, Napolitano pastas, or beef carpaccio. The wine is vegan and gluten-free.
