In 2004 Robertson Winery released a very special Shiraz to commemorate ten years of democracy in South Africa under the new constitution. This opulent wine is made from the best grapes sourced from Robertson Wineryís top Shiraz vineyards. Deep rich purple colour, intense aroma of dark ripe black berry with seductive spicy fruit and black pepper characteristics. Velvety palate with supple fine-grained tannins combining well with the French oak.
Established in 1941, Robertson Winery celebrated their 70th Birthday in 2011. The winery had its humble beginnings in a charming missionary church on the outskirts of Robertson, and itís history is closely linked to that of the town. Robertson, established 1852, were named it in recognition and appreciation of the many services of Dr William Robertson, a Scottish minister who arrived in South Africa in 1822. During the late 19th century the worker community that occupied the land where the Robertson Winery now stands built a stone church and their congregation was serviced by missionaries. When Robertson Winery was established in 1941, the small church was no longer in use and the winery acquired the building for its winemaking and cellaring operations.
