Saronsberg Die Erf Shiraz 2013

Hand-picked from our most consistent Shiraz vineyard (block 27), grown on gravelly soils at the foot of the Saronsberg. The grapes were bunch sorted, destemmed (10% kept whole bunch) and berry sorted. Only 60% of the berries were gently crushed into an open fermenter, the remainder kept whole. The must was de-juiced by 12% and given a four-day cold soak. Fermentation was allowed to start naturally, inoculated only after two-thirds of fermentation was completed. The wine was left on the skins for two weeks post-fermentation before being pressed into a new Allier French oak barrel. The wine was left on its lees for 10 months, spending 20 months in total in barrel.
