FoodSuggest Serve this wine at 15-18°C. Enjoy with slow roast venison shanks with caramelised figs.
Cellar Berries were crushed and cold-soaked for 24 hours below 15°C, and then inoculated with suitable yeast to bring out the best of the varietal. The must was fermented in open stainless steel tanks with manual punch downs every 3 hours to extract the intense colour and flavours from the must. Fermentation took about 5 days at temperatures between 24-29°C. Total skin contact of 14days. The wine was aged for 15 months in a combination of 300L French and American oak barrels, of which 38% were new.
Harvest In retrospect the season was very similar to 2015 with even less rain and drier conditions. Hot weather from mid-October through to end January restricted growth which in turn resulted in lighter bunches and concentrated berries with an average 15% decrease in yield. These conditions also led to healthier vineyards and disease free grapes with promising wines.
Vineyard These 3ha of vines (planted in 2000) are drip-irrigated to ensure optimal ripening and trained on the 5-wire Perold trellis system. Vines are planted in soils consisting of weathered granite on clay, and are on north facing slopes. The nearby Atlantic Ocean (False Bay) also has a cooling effect on the vineyards during the ripening season.
