Vinotéque Collection: Fairview The Beacon Shiraz 2012

R595.00

Grapes were harvested fully ripe at 24.5° balling. The fruit was brought to the cellar in small lug boxes, destalked and hand sorted over a sorting table. All raisins, under ripe berries and stalks were removed. The sorted berries were sent straight to open French oak fermenters (foudres). Manual punch downs (pigeage) were performed three times daily. Post fermentation maceration lasted for two days. Wine was basket pressed, and  malolactic fermentation was completed in French oak, 70% old barrels. This vintage spent a total of 20 months in oak.

 

Intense dark red in colour. Very complex yet elegant nose with layers of black cherries, mixed spice and dark fruit. The palate is full-bodied, rich and smooth with lingering black fruit flavours which make it drinkable now or to be matured in the bottle for 10-12 years
