About this Item

2014 Red
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

Duncan Savage, a trailblazing winemaker, produces some of SA’s most sought-after wines. They are something of a contradiction; ‘savage’ in their essence of minimal intervention winemaking, but utterly sophisticated in their elegance, drinkability and poise. Every year his following grows, with some of these wines reaching a cult-like status. He sources grapes from across the Western Cape winelands and his cellars are based in Salt River.

Critics Ratings

‘Shiraz-led blend, with Grenache, Touriga Nacional and Cinsaut, 2014 follows brilliant form, with floral perfume, spice and subtle red berries in delicious union. Unique expression of ‘feminine’ beauty and earthy authenticity, without the iron fist.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2017, 4.5*

‘This is an unusual blend of mostly Syrah with Grenache, Touriga Nacional and Cinsault, sourced from various sites across the Cape. Subtle clove spice from partial whole bunch fermentation, a hint of meaty reduction, floral red berry sweetness and an undertow of tannin. Drink: 2017-24.’ - Tim Atkin, SA Special Report 2016, 93/100
