Cederberg Teen die Hoog Shiraz 2009

100% Shiraz 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 vines in the country, but because they see it as their toughest pick of the season. The grapes were picked at great phenolic ripeness at the beginning of April after a long ripening period. Cold maceration for 4 days was followed by pump-overs every 6 hours. The wine went through malolactic fermentation in new French oak, where it matured for 15 months. Unfiltered, this is a selection of the 3 best barrels. Tasting note: Power with elegance. Modern and delicious. Intense Shiraz fruit. The low-yielding red slate vineyards result in lovely roasted coffee, ripe plum with dark chocolate and spicy fynbos flavours. Velvety texture with supple, well balanced tannins. Impressive length and a long finish. Will develop superbly over the next 5 to 8 years.
