About Franschhoek Cellar Baker Station Shiraz

This Shiraz pays homage to the well-preserved original station building in Franschhoek, a town with a rich winemaking history. Grapes for this wine are sourced from vineyards ranging from 7 to 20 years old, adding complexity to the flavour profile. Daily pump-overs and punch-downs during fermentation, followed by oak maturation, result in a well-structured, balanced wine.
