Destiny, Shiraz 750ml 2013South Africa, Paarl
'Voluptuous, intense, sensuous and well-balanced. Complex and layered with mouth filling rich, ripe red and black berries with hints of pepper and spice. The tannins are supple and all the components of the wine are in harmony. The finish is long and savory.' – Winemaker
The grapes were handpicked and transported to the cellar in small lug boxes. On arrival at the winery, the bunches underwent sorting, followed by destemming, then further hand- sorting of the berries to remove any remaining stems and unripe or imperfect fruit. Fermentation was slow and gentle. The skins were basket-pressed and the wine matured for 18 months in 2 new French oak barrels and 1 second-fill French oak barrel. Each bottle is hand labelled and the labels are hand numbered and signed. Our family heirloom ring is then pressed into the gold wax seal which adorns the front label. This time consuming process further emphasises the passion we have to create the Destiny.
