Simonsig Estate Heirloom Shiraz 2010

The first vineyard planted with the new SH470 clone on a low potential soil with lots of clay. Picked in two separate batches on 11 March and vinified separately. The first pick was not shrivelled and the second lot showed prominent shrivelling. The one lot spent 36 days and the other 13 days on skins. The best new Nevers barrel of each lot was selected and matured for 24 months before bottling in May 2012. Tasting Notes: A perfumed Shiraz showing succulent bramble berry fruit withlifted aromatic spices on the nose displaying fingerprint Rhone style personality. The core of berry fruit and herb flavours run persistently to the velvety finish. Delicious fruit intensity in a more restrained, elegant style.

Winemaker: Johan Malan
