CULTIVAR: 100% Shiraz
WINE OF ORIGIN: Wellington
HARVEST DATE: February 2019
YIELD: 8 ton/ha
Grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness and vinified separately. Fermentation happened in tanks over 4-6 days, pressed put back into tank to finish malolactic fermentation. After malolactic fermentation the wine was racked into 2nd and 3rd fill barrels for 12 months until they were blended, stabilized and bottled.
A fusion of sour cherries, vanilla, spice and violets entice the senses. These intense flavours follow through to the palate, resulting in a full-bodied and lingering finish.
Red meats are this wines first love, while its rich concentration and velvety texture makes it the perfect partner to slow-roasted barbecue pork. A generous chunk of smoked Gouda or an oozing piece of Camembert will emphasize the spicy tobacco notes of this well balanced Shiraz.
