KWV Cathedral Cellar Shiraz 750ml
After two days of cold maceration, which enhances colour and fruit flavours, the juice was inoculated with a combination of specially selected yeast strains. Alcoholic fermentation lasted approximately seven days. During this time, each tank was subjected to a meticulous pump-over schedule. Only after numerous tastings by the winemaking team to ensure the achievement of perfect balance and structure, was the wine pressed off the skins. The wine was racked to barrel where it underwent malolactic fermentation. It was then racked from the lees and returned to barrel for further maturation. After 18 months in barrel, only the best components were selected by our winemaking team to go into this vintage Cathedral Cellar Shiraz.
Tasting Notes: This wine shows lifted aromas of stewed plums, cinnamon, and blackberry with layers of sweet fruit and cloves. The palate is concentrated with an elegant tannin structure and well-rounded, lingering finish.
