About this Item

Shiraz, 2006
3 (1 x 3) 750ml
Eagles’ Nest is cradled in a secluded valley high up on the slopes of the historic Constantia mountain range, which forms part of the World Heritage Site, Table Mountain. The farm’s origins can be traced back to 1836 when it was used as a refreshment station between the area now known as Wynberg in the east, and the harbour of Hout Bay in the west. In order to make this journey, travellers had to cross the mountain pass, now known as Constantia Neck.

In 1984, the 38ha farm was purchased by the Mylrea family. After devastating fires that raged through the Cape in the summer of 2000, the farm was mostly destroyed, except for the historic buildings. Being part of the world famous Constantia Valley, known for its award winning wines, they decided to plant the farm with varieties that best suited the unique terroir of Eagles’ Nest.

Critics Ratings

‘2006 exceeds the promise noted in the last edition in maiden 2005. Ravishes senses with vivid cool-climate white pepper intensity, graceful lithe mouthfeel, lingering savouriness. Harmonious 14.7% alc, 19 months oak, 25% new.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2009, 5*
