Pilgrim Wines Shiraz 2020
Pilgrim Wines Shiraz 2020
A small family-owned business, driven by a profound passion for winemaking. The wines for the Pilgrim Wines brand are thoughtfully crafted by the renowned Winemaker Henry Kotzé, previously associated with Morgenster and currently at the iconic Mulderbosch. The vines for their Shiraz produce amazing fruit on the slopes of Stellenbosch Mountain. The production style is aimed at harnessing fruit and extraction, with focus on spice. The palate exudes fine tannins with a long serious focus on the length and purity. Judicial barrels age saw this wine in barrel for 16 months and bottled without any fining or filtration.
Wine Press Ratings
89 Points - Tim Atkin MW
Deep purple/red with an almost impenetrable core. Nose: Immediately engaging with sweet red and black berries, some vanilla and spice. The nose envelopes you and remind one more of a lighter “new world” Syrah – one that celebrates the vibrancy and panache that the style delivers. Pallet: It is much weightier than the nose suggests. The colour gives it away, but you only find the truth in the tasting. Very opulent and spicely brooding, not foregoing the finesse and elegance of the nose, but overdelivering in girth and volume. A big wine, but at the same time finely tuned for balance.
