CULTIVAR: 70% Shiraz / 30% Pinotage
WINE OF ORIGIN: Wellington
HARVEST DATE: February 2017
YIELD: 10 ton/ha
VINIFICATION Grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness levels and vinified separately. The Shiraz was matured in 3rd and 4th fill French oak barrels and the Pinotage on French oak staves for 12 months. After a few sample blends the perfect combination Shiraz and Pinotage was found to express both characters.
TASTING NOTES This blend of Shiraz and Pinotage will spice up your day with blackcurrant and plum notes and hints of mocha. A delicious mouthful of sweet fruit and mouth filling juicy tannin.
FOOD PAIRING Although this wine is a great partner to rich lamb casseroles and gentle Malay curries, this wine makes the best companion to a typical South African braai.
