Shiraz

Shiraz is best known as Australia's flagship grape, but, notsurprisingly, it also thrives in South Africa, which is similarlyblessed with plentiful sunshine. Jancis Robinson MW notes, "Shiraz is by far the most fashionable vine variety in South Africa today." This tasty red is named after Von Dant, a chocolatier famous not only for his love of wine and decadent chocolate creations but also for his great and meticulously groomed moustache. In his own words, "given enough wine and chocolate I could rule the world".Perfectly ripe, juicy, concentrated Shiraz grapes have been handselected from some of South Africa's premium wine regions toproduce the perfect accompaniment to apricot lamb, chickencurry or, of course, chocolate fondant!
