'Produced in what James Downes rates as a "great vintage" in Elgin, this intensely structured Merlot from one of the best sites for the variety in South Africa was made with a pair of different French clones in 2019. Aged in 40% new wood, it's bold, fleshy and intense, with ample acidity and minerality, mint, plum and bramble fruit and the concentration to age. 2024-30' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2023, 95/100

Producer information The name Shannon pays homage to the owner’s ancestors who come from Irish descent. Located in the Elgin Valley within the Kogelberg Biosphere, Shannon Vineyards’ unique terroir speaks for itself. With the Peninsula Dam creating the eastern boundary of the farm, the vineyards experience a cooling blanket of mist which is such a great geographical influencer on the farm’s climate, that Shannon has included the river mist in their logo. As such, the winemaking follows a minimal intervention approach to allow the different terroirs to be expressed in the wines.
