Luddite Shiraz 2021


Luddite Shiraz (don’t let Niels hear you call it “Syrah”) is one of the icon wines of modern South Africa. As Christian Eedes puts it: “….it’s unlike anything you may encounter from Stellenbosch, Swartland or just about anywhere else.”. This wine usually weighs in at 14.5-15.5%, while the 2021 is at 13.6% (14% on the label). This does not mean a “light” year, but one with more red fruit purity and finesse to go with that signature Luddite Shiraz texture and balance, and very importantly, a long, dry finish.

The Verburgs make wines on a hill in Bot River and have a fetish for the old-fashioned ways. Focusing on Chenin Blanc and Shiraz, Penny in the vineyards and Niels in the cellar create the most honest, delicious wines they can. The white Saboteur is sealed with a Crown Cap.
