Vineyard

SOURCE: This 2010 Shiraz was produced from fully ripe grapes harvested from Haut Espoir in the Franschhoek region.

WEATHER: Prior to ripening, the conditions were dry, with veld fires on surrounding mountains. Fortunately no smoke taint could be detected in the wine.

HARVESTING: The grapes were hand harvested in the coolness of early mornings on 2nd of March and the 8th of March. Harvested in two batches to ensure physiological ripeness.

Cellar 


VINIFICATION: After de-stemming the berries were inoculated for fermentation in small open fermentation tanks. After fermentation the wine was transferred to 50% New French oak barrels. Malolactic fermentation was done in barrel. The wine matured in these barrels for 5 years before bottling.
