Saronsberg Die Erf Shiraz 2017

100% Shiraz

Wine of Origin Tulbagh 

The best barrel of Block 27, our Die Erf Shiraz vineyard grown on a mixture of weathered shale soils and broken rock. Handpicked in the early morning, bunch sorted, destemmed and berry sorted. During fermentation the skins were mainly punched down by hand. After extended maturation, the total time on the skins was 27 days. Malolactic fermentation was completed in barrel. Aged for 20 months in a new French Allier oak barrel, the wine was given a fine filtration prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes: The wine has a deep, dark purple colour with prominent ripe plum, dark berry and floral flavours and undertones of spice. The oak is well balanced with full, firm yet accessible tannin.

This wine will be ready for drinking from 2023.

Winemaker: Dewaldt Heyns
