Kasteelberg Shiraz

2018 Kasteelberg Shiraz - 92 PTS - TA

tim atkin logo 250"I'd expect to prefer the 2017 Shiraz to the 2018 bottling, but it's actually the reverse. Maybe Alecia Boshoff has just got more experience with the fruit from this Kasteelberg site. Sweet and spicy, with enticing incense and violet aromas, fine tannins, succulent red berry fruit and deftly integrated one-third new oak. 2021-26"

2017 Kasteelberg Shiraz - 91 PTS - TA

tim atkin logo 250"One of two Shirazes that are currently on the market from Alecia Boshoff, this comes from schist-based soils in the foothills of the Kasteelberg. Floral and intense, as wines from this side of the Swartland tend to be, it's elegant and spicy, with a hint of meaty reduction and supporting, fine-grained tannins. 2022-27"

2015 Kasteelberg Shiraz - 90 PTS - EDITORS' CHOICE - WE

"This is a friendly, attractive and easy to like bottling. It boasts solid fruit concentration, expressed in waves of raspberry sauce, brambly boysenberry and just a touch of dark chocolate. The medium-weight palate shows a bit more restraint, with herbal tones of raspberry leaf and cherry stem. Drink now–2020."
