Dieu Donné Vineyards Cabernet/Shiraz 2016
SKU WT DDCS16
Dieu Donné Vineyards was acquired by Robert Maingard in 1987 in search of his French roots in South Africa. The estate is high on the steep south-west facing slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains. Thanks to our cool summer conditions and unique soils from weathered granite with a rocky topsoil, called ‘Greywack’, the vines do not show excessive vigor, nor do they over-produce. Dieu Donné’s wine-maker, Stephan du Toit, is one of the few South-African wine-makers with the distinction of being a Cape Wine Master. He is a graduate of Elsenburg Agricultural College.
This wine is a soft, smooth new-world blend, with fruity black plum flavors from the Cabernet Sauvignon and a hint of pepper from the Shiraz grapes.
