6 Bottles Shiraz 2014 4 Star John Platter Spice Berry notes
Writer's block

Ours is about 3 feet by 3 feet, and on our left is the account's block. The marketing block is down the hall.

We're joking. Obviously.

Ours is at least 5 by 5, and on Wednesdays we're allowed to write in coffee shops to maintain the illusion that we're "successful" and "writerly".

Coming up with a write up for the simple sake of a write up does, however, become difficult when we're staring complete lack of creativity right in the face. But apparently asking management to cancel all the deals for the day isn't a viable fix.

As they so delicately put it, it'd be like a comedian having the option to suddenly cancel a show if they're not feeling up to it. Not on our watch, they said. You'll do a write up whether you like it or not, they said. And be funny, they said.

So here we are, doing a write up and being funny.


Signal Gun's Hooggelegen estate has been in the De Wit family for over five generations and is one of the oldest family owned wine farms in the Durbanville area.

The VOC installed more than 50 cannons on hills and mountains around the Cape to form a signal gun chain that could call the Burgher Militia to defend the Cape. This signal gun chain extended from Signal Hill, Cape Town via Durbanville to Citrusdal in the North West, Worcester in the north and via Tygerberg to Suurbraak beyond Swellendam in the east. We still have the original Signal Gun on our farm and use this cannon and a few others that are still in good working order to fire shots on joyous occasions.

This wine offers a nose teeming with aromas of spice, including pepper, and dark berries. Expect similar notes on the palate, with a graceful finish.

Awarded a 4 Star John Platter.
