Simonsig Heirloom Shiraz 2012

Hand-picked in late March at 24.6? balling. After two days cold soak, fermentation and maceration lasted another 25 days, resulting in optimal extraction of colour, fruit and tannin. Malolactic fermentation took place in two new French oak barrels and the wine matured for 19 months before bottling. Tasting Notes: Bright, garnet-red colour. Attractive, sweet cinnamon and vanilla spices with deeper lying cacao, roasted coffee bean and lifted red berry perfume on the nose. The palate shows fragrant fruits of the forest and toasty French oak aromatics. The fine grained tannins are a sign of ripe fruit and gentle extraction from the skins. This wine is packed in wooden boxes.

Winemaker: Johan Malan
