Notes

Winemakers Notes:
A complex Shiraz filled with intense red fruit, mulberry and cherries on the nose. 15 Months in oak showing hints of sweet spice and vanilla. Red berries follow through on the palate and finishes off with a smooth lingering sensation. A well-crafted Shiraz that allows you to cellar the wine for a few years developing into a sensational wine. Pair with South African game, powerful cheeses such as young cheddar or gruyere or indulge by pairing with intricate dark bitter chocolate.

Vinification:
Closed tanks, cold maceration for 2 days, 15% juice bleeding directly after crush, pump over every 6 hours with 2 punch downs a day, maximum temperature 28°C; 14 days extended skin maceration; Barrel maturation: Medium toast 225l barrels used, combination of medium and tight grain oak for 15 months, 1st fill 60%, 2nd fill 40%, 95% French, 5% American.

Analysis:
Alc: 14.5% RS: 3.7 g/L TA: 5.9 g/L pH: 3.51
