The Oddbins Take

We are quite sure that there is a more profound meaning attached to this South African Shiraz, but we’re just going to admit that we are finding it hard not to let our inner teenager snigger at the name.

Pathetic and immature, yes, BUT, remember, this is Oddbins and we are allowed to be ridiculous. Mm kay? Just don’t bring this wine to the first meeting with your super conservative in-laws to be, like someone did, ahem.


Idiocy aside, the tantalizing aromas of dark brooding fruits and spice-laden goodness should leave you in a tip top mood. It might even put you in another kind of mood altogether…

Lothian Vineyards is a 10ha vineyard in the highlands of Elgin, started in 2004. Elgin is a traditional apple growing area that is becoming well known for its wines. It enjoys all the well-known Cape sunshine, but with the added benefit of a higher altitude and proximity to the ocean. The vineyard is owned by the Wilson family, originally from Scotland and now in their third generation of grape growing and winemaking in the Cape.

    If you're underwhelmed by Rioja, unexcited about Bordeaux and think that 'farmyardy' is a disgusting way to describe wine, then this could be the case for you. From intensely juicy Californian Pinot Noir to a brooding Argentinian Shiraz and a zesty Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc, this tour of the New World will satiate vinous desires of the richer, fruitier and longer haul variety.
