Nestling in the Bovlei valley, just outside Wellington, the Andreas Wine Estate is a hidden gem comprising 4.5 hectares of vineyards. Long, hot summer days, cooled by late afternoon breezes, chilly, wet winters and sandy and loamy soils combine to provide the perfect terroir for Andreas’ award-winning Shiraz. Small, dark and flavoursome berries are at the heart of this noble cultivar, transformed into magnificent wine in our cellar.
Intense ruby garnet in colour with an elegant nose expressing nutmeg, crushed black pepper, with subtle aniseed, ripe mulberry & dark chocolate. This carries through to the palate with subtle smoky flavours, blackberries, plums & dark chocolate blending with dry ripe tannins showing a well-balanced wine with smooth wood integration.
We recommend this Shiraz with a lovely hearty oxtail stew.
