Cellar Grapes were all hand sorted and crushed into small open fermenters. The 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. The finished wine has been pressed in a basket press. The wine has been aged in a blend of American (75%) and French (25%) 225 litre and 300 litres barrels for 18 months, with approximately 70% new wood. The wine was bottled in September 2011.
FoodSuggest Really super with warming hearty autumnal dishes such as Game pies, Beef Wellington, Osso Bucco, Braised lamb shanks or traditional South African Tomato and Lamb Bredie.
Harvest The grapes were hand picked into small baskets and taken to the cellar.
Variety Shiraz
Vineyard Sourced from Kasteelsig in Malmesbury, Swartland, a vineyard comprising mainly of red Glenrosa soil with some oakleaf - both shale rich duplex soils. The vineyards were un-irrigated, and were undergoing organic conversion. This is a vineyard which supplies grapes for some of South Africa’s top boutique wines.
