Joostenberg, Lightweight Syrah 750ml 2015South Africa, Paarl
Aromas of pepper, cherries and plums. The palate is juicy and light with a savoury finish.
The vineyards lie on the south western edge of the Paarl region. The climate is Mediterranean - i.e. cold, wet winters and dry summers. Soils are a combination of decomposed granite and Malmesbury shale. Grapes were sourced from a 16 year old, organically farmed Syrah vineyard.
Grapes were hand-picked, lightly crushed and then left to soak “whole-bunch” for 2 days. Grapes were pressed just as the fermentation kicked in and the resulting must was fermented in barrel. Malolactic fermentation occurred in the same barrel. The wine was bottled after a short maturation period in barrel (8 months). No additions of yeast, tartaric acid, Sulphur dioxide (or anything for that matter) were made to the must. A small amount of Sulphur dioxide was added to the wine prior to bottling.
Alc: 13.05% RS: 1.1 g/l TA: 5.0 g/l pH: 3.81
