Cape Red Shiraz/Pinotage/Mourvedre
A juicy fruit forward wine. The Shiraz giving tobacco and spice flavours; the Pinotage red fruit flavours; and the Mourvedre, lavender and raspberry notes, which adds dimension and interest to the predominantly spicy wine. Fresh and flavourful, the silky texture is satisfying enough for drinking on its own, but has enough personality to be confidently matched with lightly spiced dishes and fish dishes.
We have chosen grapes from the Western Cape, from areas which were identified as excellent growing regions for Pinotage, Shiraz and Mourvedre. Grapes were carefully selected and sorted before being lightly pressed to preserve the fruit. The juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks for 15 days. Components were harvested separate but blended together shortly after fermentation.
