Cigarbox Shiraz

The Story

Instead of providing lengthy descriptions about a multifaceted wine, we decided to simply capture its essence and highlight a prominent characteristic in the name, Cigarbox. So we created this bold Shiraz with a smooth finish with a clear-cut, simple and identifiable label.

Viticulture and Winemaking

Vines are nestled in broken shale rocks on a south-facing slope. The small berries are filled with intense flavours of cherries and mulberries when they enter the cellar. Gentle pressing ensures that we get the best juice and we still make use of the punch down method for colour extraction, while the wine ferments in open fermentation tanks.

Tasting Notes

The colour is deep red. On the nose you get nuances of plum, violets, cloves and tabacco. The mid-palate is juicy with prominent flavours of black cherries and dark chocolate and a long finish of red berries and espresso.

    Hallo Daar

    Ek het per toeval julle Cigarbox Shiraz by die Wine Village op Hermanus gekoop. En wat ‘n fees was daardie wyn nie!

    Verkoop julle direk aan die publiek? Ek woon op Hermanus. Wil by julle ‘n draai kom maak oppad na McGregor. Oop op Saterdagoggende?

    Sal graag julle ander wyne wil proe. Groete Errol 083 637 0700

    Ek het ‘n bottel van hierdie wyn persent gekry by die vlugkelners op ‘n vlug van SAL na Johannesburg twee weke gelede. Wel, ek het laas Weltevrede wyne in die 1980’s geproe en gereeld bestel-hierdie rooiwyn is wonderlik. Ek is nie ‘n kenner nie maar dis heerlik om ‘n rooiwyn te drink waarin mens net die wyn proe en nie alles wat bygevoeg word nie. Dis subtiel en heerlik!! Julle is nog steeds die beste wynmakers op die planeet.

The T-Touch Classic from Tissot is a very stylish rolex replica uk that would be desirable whether it had touch-driven technology or not. I'm a great fan of replica watches sale, especially of manufacturers who try to incorporate the latest technology. Watch makers like Rado and rolex replica uk are desired and loved because of the way they marry technology with beauty. Tissot watches, I feel, is one such watchmaker. I've been a fan of rolex replica for years. I like just about the entire collection from Panerai but there's one that, for me, that is special - the rolex replica uk. Panerai started making watches for the Italian navy. The company is now Swiss based. The overall look and design of replica watches sale hasn't changed that much since they were first manufactured.
