Shiraz

Suider Paarl, South Africa, South-Africa South-Africa

SIMONSVLEI 'Premier Selection' 100% SHIRAZ
Wine of Origin, from Western Cape Province of Paarl and surrounding areas in South Africa: The weather here is cold wet winters, and hot dry summers. A medium-bodied, wood-matured red wine: This has typical Shiraz flavours on the nose, with strong berry flavours following through onto the palate. A versatile wine, enjoyable with a variety of red meat dishes, it’s superb with Moroccan roast lamb. The Shiraz vine thrives in this region, so you’ll find the typical ripe maraschino cherry, plum and white pepper flavours on the nose, while prominent berry flavours follow through onto the palate. The vineyards are planted on warm north westerly slopes and the vines in this vineyard are trellised, 5 wire Perold system, with basic canopy and crop management. The vineyards only receive supplemental irrigation when it’s very dry. Harvested mid-February to the beginning of March, again fermentation is on the skins for 7-12 days after which the skins are pressed and the wine is inoculated with malolactic bacteria to initiate a secondary fermentation. On completion of malolactic fermentation the wine is matured in French oak for 6 to 8 months. There after the wine is filtered and stabilized prior to bottling.
