Simonsig Shiraz Auction Reserve 2002

100% Shiraz – Picked at 26?B from very low-yielding (3.7 T/ha) vineyards. Fermented between 26 ? 30?C with a total of 20 days on the skins. Matured in Vicard Prestige and Francois Freres barrels for 14 months before bottling in July 2003. Tasting note: Pepper and dried fynbos on the nose, with black mulberry flavours. Spicy oak vanillins and sweet cinnamon aromas integrate well with the concentrated fruit. Very tight, with substantial structure promising great maturation potential.

Winemaker: Johan Malan
