Cape Winemakers Guild

Simonsig Auction Reserve Shiraz 2003

A nine year old, low yielding vineyard on a lean sandy loam soil ripened the grapes to perfection. Two days cold soaking were followed by a warm fermentation and maceration which lasted 10 days before the wine was pressed into new American oak. After 10 months, the wine was racked into new French oak for a further 10 months before it was bottled. Tasting Note: Classic Shiraz, showing perfumed violet and cherry aromas with layered mocha, pepper, wild herbs and fynbos flavours. Smooth, ripe tannins and a mouth filling richness that leads to a lingering, elegant finish.

Winemaker: Johan Malan
