This dry farmed vineyard was planted in 1995, using Shiraz clone SH9A, grafted onto rootstock R110. The deep Glenrosa soil type retains soil moisture well and ripens the crop early, without stressing, during our long hot summers. Planted on a North-westerly facing rocky outcrop, the vines are pruned to a “bosstok” or bush vine. Depending on the growth, the vine is pruned to between 3 and 5 bearers per vine. Summer canopy management includes topping as well as green cropping after veraison. The vineyard is regularly visited during the ripening period and tested by tasting, visual and analytical examination to determine the ideal picking date.
The 2012 vintage was characterized by a cold wet winter, mild spring and a warm to hot summer without any significant heat wave conditions. This is crucial for this extreme bush vine site as the grapes are very exposed, which could lead to unwanted sun burn. Strict hand sorting ensures a wine that is rich, layered and complex, without any unwanted overripe character. Anthony de Jager.
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.
