Cape Winemakers Guild

Simonsig Auction Reserve Shiraz 2007

Winemaking Notes Low yielding vineyard (5.5 T/ha) on deep red Hutton soil produced super ripe grapes. Viognier skins were added to the fermenter and gentle pump-overs with 3 delestages during 25 days on skins. Malolactic fermentation in barrel and 4 rackings were done during the 26 months in a single new Francois Freres Nevers barrel. Tasting Notes Juicy, ripe mulberries and spicy cinnamon sugar on the nose. Hints of white pepper aromas are layered with a cedary oak influence. Beautifully concentrated fruit in a framework of fine grained tannins culminating in a long silky Shiraz finish.

Winemaker: Johan Malan
