Bartho Eksteen Sluitsteen Shiraz 2012

Sluitsteen (cornerstone) is Bartho’s crown jewel and an inspiration to every student at his Wine Academy for young winemakers. It is here where dedication, respect, passion, skill and confidence are captured with great love into the next generation of winemakers. Tasting Notes: Eckstein (German) – sluitsteen or hoeksteen means cornerstone. Besides its biblical context, an “eksteen” is the central focal point of any foundation and determines the position of the entire structure. A solid, medium to full bodied wine with perfect wood and fruit integration: currants; cacao beans; rich, round black stone fruit, particularly plums, nutmeg and smoke. This wine is packed in wooden boxes.

Winemaker: Bartho Eksteen
