What about the grapes? Shiraz 78%, Grenache 19%, Mourvèdre 3%
And the vineyards (terroir): These vineyards are all situated on South westerly and westerly facing slopes ranging in altitude from 100m – 200m above sea level. All the vines are trellised on a seven-wire hedge system that allows for perfect containment of the sometimes-vigorous growth habits of the Shiraz and Grenache varieties. Pruned to two-bud spurs, allowing for 16 – 18 bearers per running meter.
How was it made: All cultivars were fermented separately in open red wine fermenters. The fermentation temperatures hovered around 26° C peaking at ±28° C. Regular pump overs helped with extracting intense colour and soft, pliable tannins. After fermentation, the wine was pressed and racked to 500L French oak barrels with 20% new oak. The different components were aged for 12-16 months before blending.
Should this wine age / mature: A delicious wine to be enjoyed now or over the next five years.
