Description

Cyril Back is a selection of the best barrels from the vintage. As the aging in barrels continues throughout the year, the winemaking team regularly tastes through the different barrel lots and special barrels are marked and put to one side. After 26 months the marked barrels are then tasted again and only the 7 best barrels are selected for the final wine. Although Cyril Back is allowed to be any grape variety, this 2013 selection is again a 100% Shiraz. The wine has the fruit intensity and tannin structure to age beautifully in bottle. Although the wine is already showing well, I feel it will be at its best from 2017. -Anthony de Jager-
