Fairview Jakkalsfontein Shiraz

R285.00

The Jakkalsfontein vineyards are situated around a spring where, to this day, the eerie evening calls of black-backed jackals can be heard. A deep red with a colourful bouquet of mulberry, cherry, liquorice and hints of nutmeg. The palate opens further with a savoury complexity, finishing with velvety tannins for a delicately balanced wine.

Winemaker’s Tip: Try this wine against its sisters Beacon and Eenzaamheid to experience the difference terroir can make in the ultimate result of a wine.

Description

The grapes were harvested ripe at 25°C. Only the best bunches were selected in the vineyard and transported to the cellar in crates. The grapes were destemmed and the berries were hand-sorted and transferred to large wooden vats (open fermentors). Punch downs were done 3 times a day, mixing the skins for optimum flavour and colour extraction. The wine was basket-pressed and allowed to complete malolactic fermentation in 225l French barrels. The wine was racked and matured in French barrels (40% new oak) for 20 months. The best barrels were selected, blended and bottled.
