About

In the Vineyard

The Grenache and Shiraz vineyards are located on deep Malmesbury shale soils in the Swartland. Both vineyards are dryland. 

Winemaking

Shiraz grapes were destalked and lightly crushed after being fermented on the skins for 10 days and subsequently pressed. Malolactic fermentation was completed in oak barrels with a small portion in the tank. The wine was then racked and sent to barrel for 12 months, after which it was aged in a combination of American and French oak with approximately 25% new wood used.

Grenache grapes were handpicked and taken to the cellar where they were lightly crushed before undergoing fermentation.
Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at 24°C with regular pump-overs, after which the wine was gently pressed off the skins and transferred to old French oak and American barrels to undergo malolactic fermentation. It was then aged for an additional 12 months in these barrels. The components were then specially selected, expertly blended, and bottled.

Tasting Notes

Red fruit and violets are complemented with a peppery spice on the nose. Plum fruits on the palate lead through to a rich mouthfeel.

Food Pairing

This wine pairs well with red meat such as lamb and fillet. It also complements tomato-based pasta dishes very well.
