We are seeing stars with our Shiraz 2012Home » We are seeing stars with our Shiraz 2012
We’re seeing stars, the golden, sparkling, glorious kind – after having our Shiraz 2012 awarded five stars at the launch of Platter’s South African Wine Guide’s 2016 last week!
It feels as though it were just yesterday when we were proudly introducing the 2012 to the world and now we’re proudly looking back on its year of excellence. With the knowledge that we’ll soon be saying farewell to this vintage, we hope you’ll allow us just a moment to share our sweet nostalgia and take you for a stroll down memory lane – glass of Shiraz in hand, of course.
Our Shiraz 2012 took to the local and international wine markets in much the same way as the vineyards that produced it took to our cool-climate Constantia slopes. Its prestigious achievements include a rating of 94 points in Tim Atkin’s South Africa Special Report, a Gold medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards, being chosen as one of the Top 12 Shiraz in the South African Shiraz Challenge, receiving a Platinum Award at the South African Wine Index (SAWi) Awards, being rated by Decanter Magazine as one of the Top 10 South African Syrah, taking top honours at the Michelangelo Wine Awards by winning the Grand Prix Trophy for best wine at the show, being awarded a Double Gold at the Veritas Wine Awards (the 3rd consecutive vintage of Eagles’ Nest Shiraz to do so) and, crowning off a year of excellence, receiving the highest rating of five stars in the 2016 edition of Platter’s South African Wine Guide.
And now, as they say, it’s time to say goodbye. It’s sad to see the last of the Shiraz 2012 leave, as it has created such a legacy in these few months we’ve enjoyed together. The great news, however, is that it doesn’t have to be goodbye for you just yet. We still have a few cases remaining of our final stock, waiting to join your wine collection and keep you company for at least another ten years…if you can resist them that long!

We thank you for your continued support and we look forward to introducing you to the newest addition in the family, the Eagles’ Nest Shiraz 2013, in the near future!
