Cape Winemakers Guild

Simonsig Heirloom Shiraz 2016

Grapes from a 19-year-old vineyard planted with SH99 on deep red soil, ripened to perfection. Picked on 18 March with a good natural acidity, the juice was inoculated with French Rhône yeast. Pump-overs as well as delestages were done to extract optimum colour and fruit. Skin contact lasted 20 days and after pressing, the young wine went straight into new French oak Nevers barriques. The wine spent 17 months in new barrel to achieve the perfect balance.
