Saronsberg CWG Shiraz Reserve 2015

Two parcels of our best two Shiraz vineyards (block 15 and 27) that showed restrained vigour were subjected to 50% green harvesting, picked by hand, berry sorted and fermented in open fermenters. Fermentation was allowed to start naturally followed by inoculation after one third of alcoholic fermentation was completed. Up to five punch downs were done during the peak of fermentation with temperarures kept below 28°C. Twenty two months of aging in new French oak followed prior to bottling.
