Cape Winemakers Guild

Rijk’s CWG Shiraz 2011

Hand-picked in the cool of the night to retain freshness and flavours. 48 hours cold maceration (10 degrees C) prior to fermentation. 20% of the grapes were not crushed and destemmed and were left to ferment beneath the crushed grapes. Extraction was done by doing a combination of pump-overs and pigeage three times per day. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrels. Matured for 22 months in a new 300 litre French oak barrel. Tasting Notes: The wine has an exceptional vibrant red colour. A complex nose of black and white pepper spices with liquorice, bramble and black fruit undertones. Well-structured, elegant tannins support a multi-layered, creamy palate and ensure great harmony and balance.

Winemaker: Pierre Wahl
