Wine: Flying Fox Shiraz (6)


As the winter season approaches, the Flying Fox Shiraz 2021 from Stellenbosch offers a warming embrace with its rich and robust character. With each sip, you're greeted by enticing aromas of mulled spices, dark chocolate, and freshly cracked black pepper, reminiscent of a cozy fireside gathering on a chilly evening.

On the palate, this Shiraz reveals layers of ripe blackberry and plum, interwoven with hints of toasted oak and clove, adding depth and complexity to the wine's profile. The velvety tannins provide a comforting structure, while a touch of vanilla lingers on the finish, leaving a lingering sense of indulgence.

This wine is a perfect companion for the winter season, whether enjoyed fireside with hearty stews and roasted meats or savored slowly on its own as a luxurious escape from the cold. Its bold yet balanced character embodies the spirit of winter, offering warmth and comfort in every sip.
