This wine is matured mostly in concrete tanks and old casks it’s blended really early so that the components get some time together to integrate properly before the wine is bottled.
Western Cape, South Africa
Grapes: 60% Shiraz, 20% Mourvedre, 15% Pinotage, 5% Cinsault
Simple and straightforward is how we like to keep it! Grapes are picked by hand, chilled overnight and then destemmed into tank for fermentation. Extraction is done by pump overs and punch downs, depending on the type of tank – and not that much because we don’t want to extract all those harsh tannins from the skins. We go easy on them and let the grapes give us what they want without being too forceful.
