De Grendel Elim Shiraz 2018 Top 12
Owners of De Grendel Wine Estate in the Durbanville Valley, the Graaff family have played a defining role in the South African political, social and business landscape for over three generations. The De Grendel Elim Shiraz / Syrah 2018 is big in structure with a rich palate and firm tannins supported by well-integrated oak. Expressing maraschino cherry, violet and blackberry aromas, the palate is multi-layered with intense black fruit flavours - a wine for the Shiraz devotee! For a red wine only in its third vintage, it is performing outstandingly and, more importantly, consistently, continuing to attract accolades such as Top 12 champion in the 2020 Shiraz SA Challenge.
