Tim Atkin - 90 points
There exists a passion at Diemersfontein that is impossible to overlook. The Diemersfontein range of wines encapsulates the magnificence, elegance and grace of this estate and its people, and makes every sip of our wines a magical experience.
A fusion of sour cherries, vanilla, spice and violets entice the senses. These intense flavours follow through to the palate, resulting in a full-bodied and lingering finish.
Grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness and vinified separately. Fermentation happened in tanks over 4-6 days, pressed put back into tank to finish malolactic fermentation. After malolactic fermentation the wine was racked into 2nd and 3rd fill barrels for 12 months until they were blended, stabilized and bottled.
Red meat are this wines first love, while its rich concentration and velvety texture makes it the perfect partner to slow-roasted barbecue pork. A generous chunk of smoked Gouda or an oozing piece of Camembert will emphasise the spicy tobacco notes of this well balanced Shiraz.
Diemersfontein Wine and Country Estate is picturesque and produces some of the most superb wines worldwide. The vineyard is situated near the Cape's famous Wine Routes and is highly respected in the wine community for its beauty and graceful elegance.
