The undisputed icon and flagship wine of Linton Park Wines, the Pinnacle Shiraz represents the estate’s unique terroir and rich viticultural heritage.
Only 1 200 bottles of the wine is made. The grapes are selected from a single vineyard on one of the highest slopes where the stony soils, cool, gentle sea breezes, high rainfall and the warm African sun offer a unique mesoclimate ideal for the production of exceptional Shiraz grapes.
The grapes were harvested and destemmed by hand, gently pressed and fermented using Old World winemaking techniques in an open concrete tank dating to 1925.
Our winemaker has selected the finest barrels to best complement and enhance the grapes’ natural structure. Matured for 36 months in tight-grain, first-fill French oak barrels, the wine is complex with typical Shiraz characteristics and although it can be enjoyed immediately on release, it would reward careful cellaring of four to five years.
