Shannon Vineyards

Tim Atkin MW refers to Shannon's Merlots as the best from South Africa and one that stands in comparison with the best in the world. This boutique, family-owned vineyard in cool-climate Elgin is dedicated to best practices in viticulture and committed to producing minimal intervention wines that express the terroir and viticulture practices.

They produce limited quantities of top-class Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Their iconic Shannon Black Merlot earned 98 points from Tim Atkin MW; and the Shannon Mount Bullet Merlot is a consistently elegant, expressive, smooth-as-silk, complex Merlot that offers tremendous value.
