BlendPercent 40% Shiraz, 38% Grenache, 22% Mourvedre
Cellar The grapes were hand-picked into small basket and crushed into small open fermenters. Wine was fermented with a blend of natural vineyard yeast and commercial strains. We hand punched down the cap a number of times per day and when dry press in small batches in our small press. The wine has been aged in French (80%) 225 litre and 300 litres barrels for 18 months with approximately 40% new wood. My ambition was to reflect this elegant vintage with a balanced wine exhibiting a harmonious palate and long finish, an excellent partner for a wide range of dishes.
FoodSuggest Pair with warming hearty autumnal dishes such as Game pies, Beef Wellington, Osso Bucco, Braised lamb shanks or traditional South African Tomato Bredie.
Variety Shiraz
Vineyard Produced from 90% organically certified grapes grown at Kasteelsig vineyard in the Swartland. This vineyard comprises red Glenrosa and Oakleaf soils, both shale rich duplex soils. 10% of this wine is Stellenbosch Shiraz from Devon Rock, a sustainably farmed vineyard.
