Cape Winemakers Guild


Winemaking Notes This Shiraz / Viognier blend is a collaboration between the Heyns family and Saronsberg. The grapes were hand-picked, bunch-sorted, destemmed and berry-sorted on vibration tables. A portion of 12% was kept whole bunch. The mash was left in the fermenters for a five-day cold soak. Including fermentation and extended maceration the total time on the skins was 17 days. The wine was then pressed into 100% new 300 litre French Allier oak barrels where it completed malolactic fermentation. The Viognier was pressed whole bunch, settled and fermented in barrel separately from the Shiraz to preserve its delicate floral flavours. After 12 months the two portions were blended and left in barrel for a total of 18 months. A coarse sheet-filter preceded bottling. Tasting Notes The Shiraz (92%) Viognier (8%) blend has a bright red colour with prominent red berry and plum flavours with violets and spice undertones. The palate is full bodied, showing structured elegant tannins.
