The philosophy of Backsberg remains that of providing pleasure and enjoyment to a broad range of wine lovers by producing wines not only with structure and finesse, but with a high level of "drinkability".
Simply put, if you find our wines easy to drink and, above all, enjoyable, then we have been successful.
It was a gorgeous day along the Simonsberg Mountain last Saturday, as 750 ladies lined up at the start for the Tread Lightly MTB Ride. To see some photos from the event view the album on PPA’s Facebook Page. Thanks to PPA for this great event!
Pumphouse Shiraz 2008
Pumphouse Shiraz is a specially crafted cuvée based on varietal character and intensity. Black cherry, raspberry fruits and rich mocha aromas are given added complexity via subtle aniseed and vanillin tones derived from maturation and small French and American oak barriques. The palate has weight and depth due to layers of fruit tannins and sheer flavour intensity.
