Flagstone The Black South Easter Shiraz / Cab 2003

53% Shiraz, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot Bottled under screw cap. Grapes were handpicked, kept in cold storage overnight, crushed the following day and placed in flagstone open top fermentors. Many experiments with different strains of yeast were carried out. Cold maceration on skins for up to two weeks. 4-hourly punch downs. Pressed to barrel, where malolactic fermentation took place. All barrels were tasted and the best were selected for this wine. Tasting note: Attractive deep red colour with classic aromas of ripe red plums, blackberries and strawberries. Core deliciously rich in vanilla with undertones of cinnamon and spice. New American oak, well integrated with fruit and spice. Prominent ripe tannins contribute to a well rounded finish in creamy elegance.
