Badlands is our bespoke descriptor for the Swartland wine region, an arid countryside with harsh vineyard growing conditions, little water during summer and ancient weathered soils. The scorching African sun, during the phenolic ripening of our bushvine grapes, creates high Swartland 4×4 pH’s, fragile , yet tanned grape skins and mouth-watering fruit with majestic grape sugars that results into the perfect storm of intense, super enhanced Swartland terroir styled wines.
If the Devil wears Prada, it will undoubtedly prefer this inky and intense wine as its luxury drink. This Bushvine Shiraz is confident and grown on Malmesbury shale soils, accentuates its concentration of fruit. While being revered for its intensity, it carries the “Swartland signature” with great poise.
Aged in our signature Thor Vintners 1000L tanks for 10months with French oven toasted premium staves, this wine portrays the inky black pearl resemblance with its deep Carnelian maroon colour and distinctive bacon-kip character. Renosterbos & French Tarragon herbs, infused with smokey cigar box and whiffs of whisky chocolates. This is one of the more bolder and vibrant Shiraz’s you will find from the Swartland.
