Simonsig Auction Reserve Shiraz 2002

100% Shiraz Picked at 26?b from very low-yielding (3.7 tons/ha) vineyard. Fermented between 26 and 30?c with a total of 20 days on the skins. Matured in 100% new Vicard prestige and Fran?ois Freres barrels for 14 months before bottling in July 2003. 60 cases of this wine were sold at the 2003 auction. Tasting note: Pepper and dried fynbos on the nose, with black mulberry flavours. Spicy oak vanillins and sweet cinnamon aromas integrate well with the concentrated fruit. Very tight, with substantial structure promising great maturation potential. A classic expression in the perfumed Rhone style.

Winemaker: Johan Malan
