Grapes were harvested by hand at the end of March, and were picked at full ripeness. After crushing, cultured yeast was added. Skin fermentation took place at approximately 25-28 degrees Celsius. During fermentation, regular pump overs were done to ensure optimum extraction of flavours and colour. After 10 days, pressing began. Pressed juice was added to the free run juice. After primary fermentation, malolactic fermentation took place. The wine was then matured in small 2nd and 3rd fill French oak barrels for 18 months.
With its fruity nose, peppery finish and perfect balance with ripe tannins, our Shiraz is perfect for drinking right away, but could also be kept for a futher 2-3 years. Pair with big, bold dishes such as sausage and white bean cassoulet, chicken and chorizo pizza, wild mushrooms with truffle oil, and fillet with peppercorn sauce.
