Blend Information

100% Shiraz

In The Vineyard

Label detail: Cape Jazz is Cape Town's very own style of jazz, but it combines things from just about everywhere: the carnival, the church, Africa, America. The essence of Cape Jazz is unpredictability.
The Name: First bottled especially for the Franschhoek Oesfees at Solms-Delta (5 April 2008), the name of the wine combines Richard Astor's love of music with his dislike of pomposity. This lively, well-priced sweet sparkler is backed by the Solms-Delta reputation for quality.

About The Harvest

Grapes harvested at 18° Balling.

In The Cellar

Slow fermented, with a touch of wood. No malolactic fermentation to retain the high acid, which balances the underlying sweet note. Celebratory fizz added. Oak chips, for a smoother mouth feel.

Style of Wine: Pétillant. A cross between an Italian Lambrusco and an Australian sparkling Shiraz.
