Graham Beck Shiraz Barrel Select 2002

These grapes were hand picked at optimal ripeness, lightly crushed then cooled to 10?C. Cold soaked for 36 hours, fermented on skins in open fermenters. Pressed to 6?B to new French Oak barrels (225 litres) and left for malolactic fermentation in barrel. Racked and matured for 14 months in the same barrels. Tasting Note: Rich plummy colour. Intense black cherry flavour with hints of spicy mocha characteristics. Complex layers of flavour on the palate, well supported by the French oak. Good integration of tannin and fruit flavour with a long finish.

Winemaker: Pieter Ferreira
