Strydom Family Wines Paradigm 2012

The grapes were all hand harvested and separately fermented during the cool morning hours. Fermentation was done in open top tanks with pump-overs and punch-down by hand 4 to 5 times during the first half of fermentation and twice a day during the last part of fermentation. Total maturation for 14 to 16 days. Malolactic fermentation was in French oak barrels. After racking off the lees, the wine was further matured for 18 months in 50% new French oak barrels with the balance made up of second and third fill barrels.
