Cederberg Teen Die Hoog Shiraz 2010

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 the 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. This is a selection of the 3 best barrels. Tasting Notes: Intense Shiraz fruit with lots of red berries and mulberries. A combination of wild herbs, violets and white pepper aroma, distinctive of the high lying red slate vineyards. A firm structure with sweet spice and roasted coffee bean flavours that linger on the palate. A wine to mature and develop superbly over the next 4 to 8 years.
