Care for Wild Protected Shiraz 2018
Rich, peppery and silky smooth - a great expression of a luxury Shiraz.
The Protected Collection Shiraz is rich with hints of pepper and offers a soft velvety finish. Made in Elgin, a cool corner of the Western Cape, just east of Stellenbosch, this wine is a delicious halfway house between an elegant, savoury Syrah from the Northern Rhône and a powerful, brooding, full-bodied Australian Shiraz. It is perfect to pair with chicken and meat dishes as well as being a wonderful accompaniment to mature cheeses.
The brand new Care for Wild wines have been born out of an exciting partnership between Freixenet Copestick and Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary NPC, a charity who provides care and rehabilitation to a wide range of animals, and orphaned rhinos in particular. Darren Gough, ex-England fast bowler (nicknamed The Rhino), is a supporter of the charity and is brand ambassador for the Care for Wild wines.
The Care for Wild wines have been carefully crafted to showcase fine examples of South African winemaking at different price points. With a portion of every sale being donated to the charity, you can explore the brilliant tastes of South Africa and at the same time help the amazing work of the Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary.
The "Protected Collection" Bushvine Chenin Blanc and the "Protected Collection" Shiraz are exceptional, special-occasion wines which demonstrate what can be achieved by South Africa’s most dynamic winemakers.
