Cape Winemakers Guild

Simonsig Heirloom Shiraz 2011

Harvested at 26? balling and left on the skins for 26 days for perfect extraction of colour, fruit and condensing of the tannins. Straight into new barrels for malolactic fermentation and a few barrel to barrel rackings. The one barrel was Allier medium toast seasoned for 24 months and the second was Nevers seasoned for 36 months. Bottled after 19 months. Tasting Notes: Dark Persian carpet red with youthful crimson rim. Delicious sweet brambleberry and black cherry fruit with a touch of earthy dried fynbos aromas. Densely packed liquorice and cloves embellish the fruit on the palate. The velvety tannins are in total harmony with the oak and fruit to leave a lingering complex finish.

Winemaker: Johan Malan
