Shiraz

Beautiful typical varietal Shiraz perfume with an enticing floral overlay. A combination of red and purple fruit dominates the nose with violets and hints of spice. The pallet dances with a combination of raspberry and black current and fades into a smokey and flinty finish. Soft and elegant tannins are well supported by good structure and body.

Shiraz

Appealing plum-, black fruit- and spice aromas with a soft smoky nuance. Bright, juicy entry to the mouth with the same black fruit, plum and spice flavours apparent. The subtle brush of smoke is also discernible. Easy drinking and soft-textured, the wine is medium-bodied and eminently quaffable.

Vintage Notes

The 2019 South African vintage was lower in volume than ever before due to the preceding drought. Despite the smaller crop, good quality wines can be expected from this vintage. With smaller berries, there is a good concentration of flavour and a balance between acidity and sugar, contributing to the expected quality of 2019 vintage.

Winemaking

Alcoholic fermentation was completed in Stainless steel tanks ensuring the preservation of bright red fruit. The wine was pressed and racked off the lees after malolactic fermentation, and then aged on a selection of French oak staves for approximately 12 months.

Vintage Notes

These grapes are specially selected from the Cape Coastal area. These areas are unique for its warm days and cool nights. This, together with the deep red soils shows beautifully in the wine as a mix between dark- and red fruit flavours, good concentration and a soft juicy tannin structure.

Winemaking

The Shiraz grapes were harvested by hand at 24,5 Balling. After de-stemming and crushing, the wine is transferred into 10 000L French oak tanks and 10 000L stainless steel tanks. Fermentation on the skins takes place at 26°C for about 15 days. The wine is drained from the skins and the skins pressed. The free-run and press-wine are aged separately and blended after 8 months. Maturation takes place in tanks with tight-grain French oak staves and 3rd-fill barrels for about 10 months.
