Shiraz 2018 – Case of 6

R870.00

Tasting Notes:

Medium bodied with youthful ripe cherry coloured rim. A layered nose of spice, liquorice, Karoo herbal scrub and hints of white pepper. Nuances of sweet black berries and vanillin’s from oak barrels adds to the wine’s complexity. Almost sweet entry onto palate immediately replaced by savoury notes with spice and white pepper also vying for attention. Elegant tannins with a vibrant acidity earmarks this wine. The finish is long and evoking.

Suggested Food Pairing:

Serve at 19°C. Dry aged Prime rib and soy glazed root vegetables, braised Brisket and herb dumplings or Gemsbok loin with snowy mash potatoes.

Description

Winemaking Practice:

The grapes were sourced from a specific site in Stellenbosch. The grapes were destemmed and crushed and allowed a 48 hour cold soaking period before the must was heated up and wild fermentation initiated. Regular pump overs extracted colour and after alcoholic fermentation was completed, the wine was drawn off and the skins pressed. The individual wines were racked into 300 L barrels where they underwent Malolactic fermentation. The wine spent a period of 18 months in French oak barrels, all seasoned oak. After being racked out of barrel, the wine was given a light egg white fining and then bottled. Extended maturation in the bottle allowed for integration and maturation of the wine.
