Great Expectations hails from a family-owned estate in the Breede River valley. The graceful blue crane, the national bird of South Africa, now threatened, graces the label.
This Shiraz from the Western Cape region of South Africa is characterized by its deep, crimson hue, exuding black current and savory notes on the nose. Full-bodied on the palate with fine tannins that are in balance with its freshness. Ideal with venison, oxtail stew, and pungent cheeses. (from the vintner)
