Cellar Grapes were all hand sorted 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. The wine has been pressed in a basket press and aged in a blend of French (80%) and American (20%) 225 litre and 300 litres barrels for 18 months- with approximately 40% new wood. My ambition was to create a powerful satisfying wine with a rich harmonious palate and a long finish, and an excellent partner for a wide range of dishes. The wine was bottled in January 2011.
FoodSuggest This is an elegant wine demanding of your best meat dishes. Roast leg of Lamb studded with anchovies, lemon rind, garlic and rosemary will do nicely!
Harvest The grapes were handpicked into small baskets and taken to the cellar.
Variety Shiraz
Vineyard Sourced from Kasteelsig in Malmesbury, Swartland, a vineyard comprising mainly red Glenrosa soil with some oakleaf - both shale rich duplex soils. The vineyards are un - irrigated, and are undergoing organic conversion - this is a vineyard which supplies grapes for some of South Africans top boutique wines.
