Bartho Eksteen Tree of Knowledge Shiraz
A magnificent vintage. Inviting bright ruby glow. Up front, the wine shows a complex mix of smoke, dark fruits and spice on the nose. The wine is bright and focused on the palate with a lovely acid to tannin balance and a sustained finish.
Matured in old French oak for 21 months. A dash of two other Rhône grapes adding fragrance.

Bartho was South Africa’s Winemaker of the Year in 2010.
Food Suggestions: The wine is an ideal partner to roasts, cheese based dishes, rich stews and pasta dishes.
