The Stableyard Shiraz
Intense dark colored wine with opulent cherries, blackcurrant and hints of cinnamon and nutmeg oak spices. Medium bodied wine with a fruity palate and a medium long finish with lush tannins.
Grapes were harvested early mornings by hand before the bunches were destalked. Whole berries were cold soaked for 4 days before it was inoculated. Tanks fermented for 13 days at 20 – 25 degrees Celsius in stainless steel fermentation tanks. During the fermentation process pump overs were done twice a day to ensure delicate tannins. Tanks were lightly pressed after fermentation and the wine was racked into old barrels. Malolactic fermentation was also completed in barrels. The wine was matured for only 6 months in barrels before racked for bottling.
