Groot Constantia Auction Reserve Shiraz 2011

Shiraz grapes were handpicked, fermented in open 500 litre French barrels and transferred to a stainless steel tank to finish fermentation. Extended skin maceration for 30 days. The wine was matured for 12 months in 100% French oak barrels (30% first fill). Minimum stabilisation and filtration was done to preserve the quality and complexity. Tasting Notes: A classic, well-balanced Shiraz with a deep, red-ruby colour. The wine shows dominant fruit; like blue berries, plums, dark cherries and blackcurrant; balanced by delicate spice, white pepper, cedar wood and oak flavours. The spice and fruit that follow through on the palate combine with soft tannins to give a long, lingering aftertaste.
