JHG wines are created in the heart of Swellendam on their farm situated on the most southern tip of the Robertson Wine valley along the foothills of the Langeberg Mountains where they produce it in small batches.
Their unique position borders with the dry conditions of the Karoo as well as the cool sea breezes from the Coastal Regions and therefore, the direction of their vineyard planting runs from East to West. The JHG philosophy is to create delicious single-block wines – the smallest production unit for vineyards that may not exceed six hectares per cultivar.
Jan Harmsgat Shiraz
For a red wine so young, this Shiraz is remarkably drinkable with plenty of dark soft berries and spice to the fore. The flavours are rich and mouthfilling, while comfortably fresh tannins ensure there’s no heaviness. Should give pleasure over the next year or two.
