Cederberg teen die Hoog Shiraz 2008

The name ?Teen Die Hoog? was given by the workers on the farm – not because they see this cold south-easterly facing red slate hill as the highest vineyard in the country, but because they see it as their toughest pick of the season. The grapes were picked with great phenolic ripeness at the end of March after a long ripening period. The wine went through malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels where it matured for 15 months. This wine came from a three barrel selection. Tasting note: Power with elegance. Modern and delicious. Intense Shiraz fruit. Low-yielding red slate vineyards result in lovely roasted coffee beans, intense dark chocolate and spicy fynbos flavours. Velvety texture with supple, well balanced tannins. Impressive length. Will develop superbly over the next 5 to 8 years. Tasting note: The first impression the wine gives is the expressive citrus characters on the nose. The palate is bursting with flavour, starting with lime notes carrying through to a concentrated mid palate, with a very long lingering mineral aftertaste.
