Background: The salute “Bayede!” was shouted by King Shaka Zulu to unite the nations, and is still today used to greet His Majesty King Goodwill Zwelithini Kabhekuzulu. The Shaka Zulu brand was developed to unite the nations in an effort to create sustainable jobs. The beadwork around the neck of the bottle is made by women in rural areas. The Royal Zulu household is the beneficial endorser of this wine that represents the richness and variety in a Simple yet Elegant Style. Shaka Zulu is not just a wine, it is a reflection of 200 years of tradition and excellence.

Tasting Notes: A wine fit for a King. Fresh, fruity, and soft-drinking wine with a tropical bouquet and golden delicious apple whiffs. A zesty wine with a refreshingly crisp finish. Floral aromas with apple and pear-like flavors and assertive acidity.
Food suggestions: Because of the wine’s awesome acidity and inherently sweet flavor, you’ll find it pairs well with foods that have a sweet and sour element. Ideal with Asian cuisine or pork chops with apples. Try with your next Thanksgiving Turkey dinner.
