Winemaking

Sourced exclusively from Thelema Estates' vineyards, which were planted in 1997 in decomposed granite soils at a density of 1970 vines per ha. The vines are spur pruned to 2 buds every 12cms with a vertical hedge trellis and yield 6 t/ha, irrigation is with a supplementary drip system. Hand harvested during the middle 2 weeks of March, the whole bunches were de-stemmed, crushed and pumped into stainless steel tanks where fermentation takes place at 28 degrees C for 6 days with pump overs and 5 days static. After a gentle pressing and malo-lactic fermentation the wine ages for 18 months in 225 litre barrels, 80% French oak, 20% American, 30% of which are new.

Food Recommendation

This full bodied Shiraz is perfect to partner grilled, roasted, pan fried or char-grilled red meat such as beef or lamb. Perfect with a rare pan fried ostrich steak or haunch of venison.

Press

  • You have to get Shiraz really ripe,” says Gyles Webb, “so you end up with hig alcohols.” That may be true, but the wine can still display serious pepper spice and acidity as well as concentration and a touch of mint. Well-balanced stuff. 92 points
