About this Item

2009 Shiraz
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

Niels and Penny Verburg’s agenda to eschew innovation at this Bot River property, after going solo in the early 2000’s after successful wine making at nearby Beaumont, has served them well, establishing Luddite as one of the finest Shiraz producers in South Africa.

Critics Ratings

‘Seductive spicy berry compote of 2009 follows 2008. Complex, layered, refined and elegant. Powerful and generous yet focused, restrained. Maiden vinification in-home cellar of all Bot River fruit. Just 30% new oak used in 24 month maturation.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2014, 4.5*

‘Deliberately made as a bold, blockbuster style that makes no compromise with the modern wave of South African Syrah, this is rich and ripe with notes of iodine, fruitcake and smoky oak.’ - Tim Atkin SA Special Report 2015, 91/100
