Simonsig Mr Borio’s Shiraz 2011
By Christian Eedes, 22 May 2013
Mr Borio’s Shiraz from Simonsig in Stellenbosch has always offered bang for your buck and the 2011 vintage at R70 a bottle doesn’t disappoint. On the nose, red and black fruit, some pepper and a slight coffee note. The palate shows good fruit concentration, bright acidity and smooth tannins. There’s an impression of sweetness but this is crowd-pleasing stuff not to be over-analysed.
