Cape Heights Shiraz - A good all rounder and great with local lamb chops (750ml)

Description

Shiraz made with the Braai (BBQ) in mind!

TASTING NOTES
A ripe and juicy Shiraz, packed with dark fruit flavours and black pepper notes on the palate.

IN THE VINEYARD
Trellised and planted in the shale soils towards the North East parts of the Valley (bordering the Swartland Region).

IN THE WINERY
Produced from only free run juice and fermented on skins in stainless steel tanks. The ripe stems are left on the bunches to add to the overall tannin quality of the wine, whole bunch fermentation takes place. After a third of the sugar has fermented, delestage is done once per day. The wine is drawn of at the bottom of the tank and splash into a separate tank. Then it is splashed back into the fermetation tank onto the skins and stems. Much more air is incorporated into the wine this helps to release the fresh, fruity and spicy aromas so well known in this wine.The wine is left on fine lees for an extended period for greater palate weight and mouthfeel.

FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS
Home made burgers, sticky ribs, pulled pork - all on the BBQ of course.

IN THE PRESS
2013 Vintage: "Vibrant and attractive on the nose, this has ripe, punchy acidity, some real depth and character and a long finish. Well made, with well-integrated, slightly earthy tannins and a nice fruit backbone." Sommelier Wine Awards 2014, Judges Comments
