Lievland Shiraz 2004 Wine
South Africans Susan and John Colley bought the farm in 2003. Keeping true to the history of Lievland the Colleys' have devoted much of their energy to the vineyards. Pulling up numerous hectares for replanting and preparing the remainder for organic and biodynamic wine farming, they have positioned Lievland to remain a top wine producer in the years to come.

Terrior

The climate, location and soil on the slopes of the Simonsberg create excellent conditions for the cultivation of high quality grapes and some of the best known wines of the Cape are made here, including those of Lievland. The different west, north and eastern slopes bring about favourable intervals between ripening of the grapes, this enables the winemaker to harvest every block of vineyard at optimum ripeness. The harvest per vine is limited by dryland farming, leaner soils, sparse fertilization and more vines per hectare. Together with a difference in height between the highest and lowest vineyards of 155m, the above factors endow Lievland with an exceptional meso-climate which gives the estate's wines its individual character.

Shiraz 2004

This Shiraz is the full expression of Lievland's terroir. A smooth and elegant wine showing ripe cherries and pomegranates with a subtle spiciness on the finish.
