This vintage has not been rated yet, see the tasting notes on the 2017 vintage below:

'Some whole-bunch fermentation before maturation lasting 24 months in mostly French oak, 32% new. The nose shows red and blackberries, iron fillings, cracked pepper and spice while the palate is surprisingly medium-bodied given an alcohol of 14.86% – a dense core of fruit is matched by a great line of acidity and nicely grippy tannins. Lots of flavour intensity without sacrificing balance.' – Christian Eedes,, 93/100

'Incredibly dark plummy in colour with purple tones towards the edges. Floral, sweet fruit, cinnamon, touch of vanilla and a hint of fynbos on the nose. Palate has bold juicy fruit on entry with fresh tannin grip on mid-pallet followed by dark, spicy fruit. The finish is long and invitingly decadent.' – Niels Verburg, Winemaker

Producer information In 1999 Niels and Penny Verburg established their own wine farm on the slopes of the Houw Hoek Mountains in Bot River. They named their farm Luddite, meaning ‘someone who is resistant to new technology or new ways of working’. This definition captures their winemaking philosophy perfectly as Niels is constantly striving to create perfect wines despite the challenging conditions thrown his way. Niels and his team at Luddite are incredibly passionate about their Shiraz and are never willing to compromise on quality. This dedication translates into consciously-farmed grapes and small-batch wines that have amazing character.
