Artisan Merlot l Shiraz l Cabernet Sauvignon
The Vrede en Lust Artisan Range is an exclusive range of carefully handcrafted wines, made in very small quantities exclusively for our Wine Club Members. For this range the winemakers are encouraged to experiment with different styles and winemaking techniques using small batches of site specific grapes. The labels are reproduced from our winemaker’s own handwritten versions of the labels. The first Shiraz crop from Elgin vineyards was harvested in 2010, which was a 5-barrel run under the Artisan range
This three cultivars red blend is a superb example of taking the best each cultivar has to offer. Fresh and fruitiness from the Merlot, the Shiraz contributes to subtle spice and cherries nuances, backbone, and structure offered by the Cabernet Sauvignon. Harmonious oak integration lingering on the palate.
