In The Vineyard

Shiraz is sourced from a special selection of our vineyards, predominantly at Fairview on the south western slopes of Paarl Mountain on decomposed granite soils. Complimentary components of the blend are from dryland vineyards in Agter-Paarl on deep Malmesbury shale soils and from dryland vineyards in Swartland and from our cooler Atlantic vineyards in Darling.

About The Harvest

Harvest Date: End of February through to mid March

In The Cellar

Grapes were destalked and lightly crushed before fermentation. Grapes were fermented on the skins for 10 days and then pressed. Malolactic fermentation was completed in oak barrels with a small portion in tank. The wine was racked and sent to barrel for 12 months. The wine was aged in a combination of French and American oak, with approximately 30 % new wood being used. The components were then specially selected, blended and bottled.
