It’s been a while since I’ve written as I’ve been overseas for the last couple of months judging at the International Wine Awards in Georgia, visiting European importers and pouring my wines on the Naked Wines 2016 UK Tour – as you can see, it was all hard work, no play!
One of the highlights of my trip was my time in France where I’m delighted to announce that my wines were very well received. My Kershaw Elgin Chardonnay and Kershaw Elgin Syrah are now available at:
La Cour des Vins, Périgueux,
Les Caves du Forum, Reims
La Boite à Vins, Paris
L’Envie du Sud, Toulouse
Le Comptoir de Pessac, Pessac, Bordeaux
Aux Quatre Coins du Vin, Bordeaux
La Ligne Rouge, Bordeaux
Upon arriving home to a cold wet Elgin, what better to do than open a bottle of red wine – my 2013 Kershaw Elgin Syrah. On the palate there’s juiciness, raspberries and fruit compote. The tannins are softening and the Syrah’s complex character melds with a piercing but lifted perfume. Definitely more svelte than a few months ago.
I decided to open a bottle of my 2012 Kershaw Elgin Syrah to see how that compared. Super-smooth tannins that allow the wine to slide along the palate. The tertiary elements are really coming to the fore; soft dark chocolate and a creamy richness.
I’m often asked how each vintage differs so I’ve decided to offer a mixed case of my Kershaw Elgin Syrah – 3 bottles of 2012 and 3 bottles of 2013* – so that you can taste both together. Priced at R2250 including delivery within South Africa, ORDER NOW via email@example.com
Until next time,
