Graham Beck: The Game Reserve Shiraz 2014
The Game Reserve Shiraz is reminiscent of ripe, luscious berries like mulberries and cherries. On the palate, a pleasant spiciness of white pepper reveals, paired with sweet spice. The tannins are by all means noticeable yet rather adorn the tongue than being rough. A harmonious and rich red wine from South Africa.
