Cellar Treatment:

Cold soaked for one day and then inoculated with selected yeast. Fermentation temperature was between 24-26 degrees Celsius. Regular pump-overs were given to enhance colour and flavour extraction.

Tasting notes:

Often referred to as Shiraz Country, the Riebeek Valley is renowned for exceptional Shiraz wines. This Shiraz is a lively, rich wine; full-bodied with a subdued smokiness on the nose and a pallet of ripe fruit and interesting spice. Well-balanced and smooth, the aftertaste lingers with the exciting flavours of chocolate and spice.


Serve: Perfect companion to meat, game, duck, goose, pasta and cheese. Serve at room temperature.

Ageing: Ready to drink, but will benefit from another year in the bottle.
