Saronsberg Die Erf Shiraz 2018

100% Shiraz

The best barrel of Block 27, our Die Erf Shiraz vineyard grown on a mixture of weathered shale soils and broken rock. Hand-picked 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 22 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.

Ready for drinking in 2026.

This wine is packed in a wooden box.

Winemaker: Dewaldt Heyns
