Saronsberg Die Erf Shiraz – Grenache – Mourvèdre – Viognier 2011

The grapes were hand-picked from low yielding vines in the early morning hours, forcecooled, hand-sorted and transported by gravity to open top fermenters. An average of three day cold-soaks preceded separate fermentation of the various cultivars. Four punchdowns were done per day and one pump-over. After fermentation the wine went through malolactic and was aged for 22 months in new French oak barrels. The best barrel of the various cultivars was selected and one barrel blended. No filtration.
