Dear Wine Aficionado,

Nestled on the slopes of the Helderberg and only 9 km from the Atlantic Ocean, Uva Mira Mountain Vineyards is known for our fine collection of estate wines including The Mira Shiraz and D.W. Syrah.

Our cool-climate conditions allow for a slower ripening process, which together with site-specific viticulture helps to retain acidity in our grapes and preserve their vibrant and lively flavours. Decomposed granite soils give our wines their distinctive ethereal perfume and lift. In our Shiraz and Syrah, opulence gives way to finesse, with the emphasis on elegance, freshness and balance. These wines have the potential to age gracefully, allowing their flavours to evolve and develop over time.

“Syrah from South Africa becomes more explosively delicious with each vintage, and there’s a strong argument that Syrah produces South Africa’s most exciting reds.” Oz Clarke on Wine, Your Global Wine Companion.

We have included Greg Sherwood MW reviews of both expressions handcrafted on Uva Mira below for your reading pleasure on this, International Shiraz Day.

Made in a manner intended to be a little more ‘new world’ in style, The Mira Shiraz 2020 has evolved into a more subtle, elegant, feminine expression from fruit grown on slightly warmer slopes. Stainless fermented with a whole berry portion to improve the perfume, the wine spent 16 months in oak barrels with a circa 40% new portion. Aromatics show sweet maritime kelp notes, crushed raspberries, black berries and savoury chargrilled meat nuances. The palate reveals a delightful bright tart freshness and energy with crisp focused acids, sleek concentrated black berry fruits and cured meats, black currant and a salty, smoky cherry-tinged grilled herb finish. An impressively sophisticated Shiraz.

A sophisticated 600 bottle cuvée that shows complex aromatics of bruleed coffee beans, grilled herbs, dried fynbos, black peppercorns, chimichurri spice and barbequed meats. Elegant and seductive, the palate has a very sleek alluring texture with very fine grained, polished, finessed tannins that emphasize the wines dusty minerality married to sweet cured meats, tart red and black berries with a smoky graphite undertone. The wine is luxuriously plush and expansive but also wonderfully fleshy, focused and intense with an effortless sweet fruited power and persistence. A very distinguished Syrah made in a decidedly Northern Rhône Hermitage style. Drink now to bathe in its elegant hedonistic splendour or cellar for a further 8 to 10+ years.
