The Vineyard/ Terroir:
This single vineyard Shiraz is rooted in Tukulu soils, which are derived from ancient, decomposed granite. The vineyard is situated on a cooler Southern facing slope, and together with the cool Atlantic breezes it has a long ripening period which ensures the even ripening of the berries with a naturally crisp acidity.
Harvesting was done by hand when grapes reached the desired sugar content. Two hours skin contact were applied in the press after which grapes were whole-bunch pressed and the juice settled over night. Fermentation lasted seventeen days in a stainless-steel tank after which it was transferred to old barrels, for three weeks, before bottling.
Colour: Rose petal pink
Aroma: Bouquet of red berries; Sweet candy floss with lingering
Palate: A balance between cherries and stone fruit with a wellbalanced acidity that enhances the lingering red berry flavours
