This vintage has not been rated yet, see 2019 tasting notes:

'The Mount Bullet vineyard is planted with five different Merlot clones and all of them found their way into the 2019 release. Lighter and more refined than some past vintages, this strays into Cabernet Franc territory, with graceful tannins, red cherry, capsicum and pencil shaving notes and finely judged oak. Deserves its reputation as one of the best Cape expressions of the grape. 2024-29' – Tim Atkin, MW, South African Special Report 2022, 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.
