Winemaking Process Fermentation initiated in open-top stainless tanks using a commercial yeast on both the Shiraz and Pinotage. Pump overs and manual punch downs with regular intervals done during fermentation to maximise extraction.
Maturation All the wine aged in French oak for 12 months using 2nd, 3rd and 4th fill barrels. Both cultivars handled separately before final blending followed by bottling.
Tasting Comments Rich aromas of spice, plum and dark fruit. A balanced wine with overtones of toasty oak, black pepper and lingering coffee and chocolate flavours. Pair with most grilled red meats, BBQ, smoked meats, mature cheeses and dark chocolate.
