Cederberg Teen Die Hoog Shiraz 2012

Vinification: Cold maceration took place for 4 days in closed tanks. Fermentation happened at 25-28 degrees C with pump overs every 6 hours – thereafter 20 days extended skin contact. The latter was followed by malolactic fermentation in new 225 litre French oak Allier barrels and left to mature for 15 months. The three best barrels were selected for this wine. Tasting Notes: The 2012 is a proud young sibling of the world’s number one Shiraz as selected by the international Syrah du Monde 2014. From these vines an intense Shiraz is produced – a powerful wine, yet elegant on the palate with layers of black cherries and mulberries, hints of white pepper and violets on the nose. Juicy ripe tannins and beautifully balanced oak. ‘Teen Die Hoog’ Shiraz has been carefully crafted to mature and develop further in the bottle for another 4 to 8 years.
