Simonsig Heirloom Shiraz 2013

Full, ripe Shiraz grown on deep red weathered shale soil was picked at the end of March and fermented in a concrete tank with regular pump-overs. Slightly cooler fermentation at 24°C added fresh fruit and softer extraction. Maceration lasted 4 weeks and the wine was racked straight into new Nevers oak seasoned for 36 months. Regular rackings helped to soften the tannins and expose the fruit. Bottled after 18 months.
