A rich, complex wine with soft flavours of plums and peppercorn. The vanilla and spice flavours linger on the palate. Although easy drinking and well balanced, this wine will develop in the bottle for at least another five years.

Blend Information
Shiraz
In The Vineyard
The moderate climate and fertile soils, combined with cooling winds in the afternoons, create ideal conditions for growing quality red grapes.
About The Harvest
The grapes were harvested in February 2000 from a vineyard situated on clay soil in the Muldersvlei area in Stellenbosch.
In The Cellar
The grapes were harvested fully ripe and fermented in stainless steel tanks with cultivated yeasts. After pressing, malolactic fermentation was completed before the wine was matured in new and second-fill French oak barrels for ten months. The wine was bottled in January 2001.
