Grape - Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc/Merlot/Petit Verdot
Where - Stellenbosch, South Africa
What - Martin Smith is a third generation winemaker from Tulbagh, South Africa. In recent years, Martin has worked to create Paserene; a forward thinking winery with the aim of making exceptional wines in keeping with best environmental practices. The Shiner is one of our all time favourites. Fruit is hand harvested and vinified in steel before blending and aging for a whopping 22 months in a mixture of old and new french oaks. This is a beast of a wine and everything you could want from a South African take on a Bordeaux blend. This wine is rich with notes of bramble, plums, tar, pencil shaving, smoked spices and cacao nibs.
Powerful, concentrated and savoury. Vegan. 14% ABV.
