Winter’s Drift Syrah 2012

Tasting Notes

Colour: A dark, rich plummy colour going over to a purple rim.

Nose: Dark red hues lead to a peppery nose.

Palate: A combination of red and black berry flavours. Oak aromas with smooth, soft tannins.

Food: A distinct blend of both Northern & Southern Rhône characteristics contributes to a remarkably enjoyable wine to go well with most red & white meat.

Ageing: Will age splendidly over the next three to seven years.

Vinivication: After destalking the Shiraz, berries were hand sorted and cooled down to +/- 14 ºC. After a gentle crush, the must was cold soaked for 5 days with regular punch downs wherafter it was inoculated with selected wine yeast. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks with 3 pump overs per day and with daily delestage. Malolactic fermentation took place where after the wine was racked into 225 litre & 300 litre French Oak barrels where it matured for 11 months

Viticulture: The Shiraz vineyards have a warmer North West aspect, and are 337m above sea level. Planted with a vine spacing 2.5m x 1.6m in deep red/brown soils with high water retention capacity, but very well drained.
