Produced from intensely concentrated Shiraz grapes, this wine exhibits a wonderful velvety depth. Black cherry and mulberry notes give way to hints of aniseed and vanilla, which are derived from maturation in small French - and just a few American - barriques.
In the vineyard : Lyre system 20-year-old vineyards - grown in weathered granite and Chocolate Cake soils on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain - allow for maximum sun exposure ensuring happy and healthy older vines.
UIn the cellar : Soft-skinned Shiraz is fermented warm for 5-6 days. It is then pressed to finish fermentation in barrel. Ageing occurs for 12 to 18 months in small French and American oak barrels.
