Eagles’ Nest, Shiraz, Constantia 2012

18.25/20pts (94)

Eagles’ Nest’s position at the top of Constantia Neck means it can ripen Syrah regularly in what is mostly a white wine area. Profound yet refreshing, this is the best release yet from Stuart Botha: mint, pepper, spice and tapenade with subtle oak.
