Eikendal Charisma 2019

94 pts Tim Atkin MW 2018
Platter Review: 4.5*

The Charisma 2019 is an ingenious creation and red blend living up to its name. The Shiraz (Rhône Valley) lends a tight, fresh structure with aromatic and seasoned undertones. Petit Verdot (Bordeaux) contributes a rich berry character and the Sangiovese, in true Italian style, adds fruity flavours with flair on the palate. The result is a bold, charming, seductive and ultimately elegant wine. Best now or up to 6 years post vintage. Outstanding quality at a very affordable price, one of only three wines to win the Top Shiraz based blend in the country by the Shiraz SA association in 2016.

Shiraz 75%, Petit Verdot 21%, Sangiovese 4%

Food Pairing
Pair with Mushroom & Chorizo Risotto, Veal, Chocolate Truffles.

The Estate
At Eikendal they truly believe that good grapes make for a good wine, and more and more energy goes into our vineyards, with assistant winemaker and farm manager Edward Jonsson at the helm. While some of our vineyards are now in their 30’s and producing stellar wines, they also believe that constantly evaluation vineyard quality will help them identify blocks that need to be replaced and when they do, they only use the best plant material available on the market.
