Kaapzicht Suidooster Shiraz 2019 750ml
Perched high in Bottelary, these vineyards have one of the best views of Table Mountain. Here, the prevailing south-easter or suidooster wind gusting off False Bay is ferce and unrelenting. As it carves its way around the granitic outcrops between the vines it delivers small berries, shaping a Syrah with deep concentration and refinement.
From one of the highest lying vineyards on Kaapzicht at 320m above sea-level, these grapes are hand-harvested, and destemmed with whole-berry fermentation. After gentle pressing the wine undergoes malo-lactic conversion in stainless steel tanks. The wine is racked to 300l barrels for 16 months.
Tasting Notes: Notes of violets and black pepper with bright red fruit. A focused and accessible palate defines this very attractive and concentrated Shiraz.
ABV: 14.73% / Variety: 100% Shiraz / Country: South Africa
