Winemaking process

100% Shiraz grapes grown on deep koffieklip soils.
Grapes are harvested at optimal ripeness then crushed and de-stemmed directly into stainless steel tanks.
The grapes undergo 24 hours cold maceration before fermentation utilising a small portion of whole bunches.
Post fermentation the grapes are left on the skins until the tannins are soft after which the wine undergoes
ageing in older wood.
