Mr Borio’s Shiraz


Wine club members get 20% off.

Alessandro Borio, a prisoner of war here during World War 2, stayed on making South Africa his home. A Master in “cemento” his unparalleled masonry skills and colourful personality made him a close friend of Simonsig’s Malan family. He built the first cement wine tanks in the oldest part of the cellar that is still used to produce the much lauded Simonsig Shiraz today.

The wine displays a dense opaque colour with a plum undertone. Delicious notes of red berry fruit infused with black cherries. Subtle hints of cedar oak transforms into attractive notes of spice. A repetition of succulent black cherries reflects on the finish.
