About:  Franschhoek's well-preserved original station building with its enduring gabled Cape Dutch lines is acknowledged by this well-structured Shiraz.

From vineyards that vary in age from 7 to 20 years. The vineyards are planted on varied soil types that lend specific nuances and characters to each block of grapes contributing to the complexity of the wine.

24 hours of cold maceration on the skins allowed maximum colour extraction to begin before the juice was inoculated with yeast and allowed to ferment at controlled temperatures. Pump-overs were alternated with punch downs at least 3 times daily, before 8 to 12 months of oak maturation. Finally the wine was blended, stabilised and bottled.

Tasting Notes:  Excellent mulberry, plum, pepper and spice are balanced by soft, ripe tannins for a finish with length and finesse.  

A great match for charcuterie, duck confit, roasted venison and mature cheddar or bluer-veined cheese.
