Kingston Estate

The Ink Shed Petit Verdot Shiraz 2017

True to it’s name this #shiraz #petitverdot blend pours purple black. Rich with bramble fruit, some prune notes but it avoids flabbiness with bracing acidity and moderate tannins that fade quickly. I find it unbalanced with that tartness but not much complexity or depth. — 5 months ago

@Delectable Wine this is the 2015 Ernie Els Cape Winemakers Guild.

Our first time every at the Cape Winemakers Guild Auction and we will make sure to come back! (Tasting was on 9/28/18).

Sixteenth wine at the Friday Auction Tasting for the Cape Winemakers Guild and the fifth red wine. This is made up of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Shiraz and 10% Cinsault by Louis Strydom from the Stellenbosch region. Aged for a total of eighteen months prior to blending and bottling. Only 200 cases produced with 60 being auctioned in 2018 and 60 auctioned in 2017.

Medium to deep ruby red in appearance. Coated with dark spices and berries on the nose with a touch of gravel at the back end. Medium tannins (6.5/10) and medium plus bodied. A bit savory on the front of the palate with herbs, spices and some dried cherries. Dry and long finish. Still a very young wine that needs some age to develop. Drink till 2032.

$$ - Tasted at the Cape Winemakers Auction. Average bid at auction was R3,957.00 ($46.54 a bottle) a case. Highest bid was R5,800.00 ($68.22 a bottle) and lowest bid was R3,400.00 ($39.99 a bottle). (91+)

Hand Made Langhorne Creek Shiraz 2015

Judged this #Shiraz #wine at a recent competition. Opaque color. Aromas continued to change over a long duration. Deep berry, briary, table pepper. Palate was very consistent, an extension of the nose. Underlying herbal notes. Really cool expression. Opened 6/21/17 — 2 years ago

Rogue Admirals Red Blend 2017

Curtis is with me in spirit cause I’m drinking while we record his podcast. It’s full bodied and a little spicy and pairs well with great conversation. #GaysidePod #badandboozypod #Delectable #WinesHoes #Shiraz — 6 months ago

Shiraz 2016

Vintage 2016 - deep purple, smell with explosive morello cherries, cedar, spicyness, touch of rubber (South Africa) and a smooth velvet taste. Lot of power. Partnered great with boudin noir and duck liver - at Meesters in wijn Maastricht #shiraz #southafrica — a year ago
