Haut Espoir, Shiraz, Franschhoek, South Africa, 2009
Haut Espoir’s 2009 Shiraz, lovingly crafted by owner Rob Armstrong is a thing of beguiling beauty. Having spent 20 months in barrel before bottling it was then aged at the cellar and only released in 2018.
The wine is charming and charismatic, belying the 15% alcohol content, with notes of fresh prunes, dates and figs slowly being stewed over a low heat with a healthy fistful of ground white pepper before being spooned into an old, well worn pair of calfskin shoes in act of brutal, but beautifully perfumed, vengeance.
