About Perdeberg Vineyard Collection Shiraz
A deep purple colour with plum, black berry and white pepper flavours filling the glass. The intensity of the fruit carries through to the palate and fills one’s mouth with dark, rich fruit flavours rounded off by well managed oak. The aftertaste is long and integrated.
