Tasting Note

The deep maroon centre is complemented with strong plum, oak and spicy tones. A bouquet of bell pepper, caramel and vanilla leaps out of the glass. The wine has a very soft front palate and fruity, but firm, mid palate with a fresh and long after taste. The Shiraz provides this blend with typical red fruit and spicy flavours, the Mourvèdre provides berry and fresh herbal aromas and the Viognier complements the overall aromatic sensation and softness to accompany the wood.

About the Producer

Waverley Hills is best known for producing organic wines with a unique style, extremely smooth with soft ripe tannins and robust fynbos characteristic. The Estate is situated between Tulbagh and Ceres, close to Wolseley, South Africa, at the foothills of the breathtaking Witzenberg Mountain Range. The fertile, yellow clay terrain is impregnated with river stones, resulting in well-drained soils with excellent water holding capacity.

All the vineyards are irrigated with pure spring water and are located on a natural watershed area. The area is renowned for its diverse fynbos (indigenous flora), giving their wines a unique herbaceous characteristic.

Black Dog Wine Agency's Director David Paddle is passionate about marine and shark conservation. He decided to team up with Waverley Hills Vineyard to create two wines to raise funds for a British Charity called Bite-Back. Bite-Back raises awareness and runs campaigns to protect the oceans and sharks. Waverley Hills is a 100% organic vineyard situated between Tulbagh and Ceres in South Africa. As Well as being 100% organic they are also a WWF conservation champion, acknowledged as an environmental leader in their industry for their commitment to conservation.The two wines are Whitefin Pinot Grigio and Blacktail SMV and 50% of all the profits from the sale of these wines goes to Bite-Back.
