Cape Winemakers Guild

Saronsberg Sneeusig Shiraz 2012

Grapes hand harvested from low yielding vines grown on weathered shale soils were picked in the early morning hours, force-cooled, hand-sorted and transported by gravity to an open top fermenter. A three day cold-soak preceded fermentation which was allowed to start naturally and inoculated half way with D254 yeast. Five punch-downs were done per day. After fermentation the wine went through malolactic fermentation and was aged for 20 months in new French oak barrels. The best barrel of this vineyard was selected.
