Category: Tags:, ,

The Classic Selection range of cultivar-specific wines comprises distinct, carefully blended wines from different parts of the renowned Paarl wine region.

The style is marked by climatic and maritime influences of the nearby ocean and the Boland mountains that result in fresh, fruit-driven wines reflecting typical varietal character and flavour.

The vineyards are situated in the Paardeberg area and on the Drakenstein Mountain slopes, where grapes ripen optimally at different times. Granite and Hutton soils provide freshness, while shale soils contribute to the full-bodied structure. Ideal planting locations with hot day-time temperatures and cool nights contribute to the slow, late ripening of this Shiraz, resulting in unique spicy flavours with characteristic black pepper. Most of the vineyards are grown on a trellis system, with a portion of bush-vines, the combination of which aspects results in excellent batches to blend.

The grapes were harvested during March at optimal ripeness of approximately 24° Balling. After destemming, cold-soaking took place which reduces the fermentation temperature in order to allow for a slow, soft extraction of colour and flavours from the grape skins. Prolonged skin contact of one week resulted in a richly intense colour with bold spicy flavours. Malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks further softens the wine and produces an elegant, smooth Shiraz with gentle tannins and a firm fruit structure. Wood-maturation for several months in older barrels adds complex flavours with hints of oak and spice.

This soft, elegant Shiraz shows layers of ripe blackcurrant fruit and typical Shiraz flavours of spices and plums. Delicious when served with oxtail and steak.

    Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established
    blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I
    can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but
    I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions?
    Thanks
