Short Street SGM is full-bodied red wine, well balanced with pronounced red berry flavours and a hint of spice, complemented by subtle oak nuances.
The velvety tannin structure is typical of expressive Swartland wines and has been coaxed to perfection by our gifted team of wine makers.
Serve at room temperature as a glass on its own or pair well with bold, full flavoured foods like roasted duck, lamb and game meat.
The wine is already quite mellow with soft tannins and the winemaker suggest to drink within 2 to 3 years.
Capitalising on the unique terroir, the growing demand for varietals suitable to adapt to global climate changes and the drive towards sustainability, Riebeek Cellars started cultivating, Rhone varietals that are best suited to the terroir, to produce a range of world class Rhone style blends.
