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 centre. Delicious notes of plum on the nose and succulent black berry fruit. Dominant black cherry fruit infuses with subtle hints of cedar oak that states a well-integrated wine. A repetition of dark fruit on the finish.
