Delaire Graff Shiraz 2016 


Stellenbosch, South Africa

750ml / 14% ABV

Blend: 100% Shiraz

This juicy, ripe and approachable Shiraz with its ruby colour and purple tints has a spicy white pepper undertone as well as lavender and dark red fruit aromas of mulberries. It is characterised by versatility, demonstrating a smooth soft palate with a savoury finish.

In the vineyard: Challenging conditions, including extended warm weather and little rainfall, led to a reduced crop in 2016. However, the dry conditions headed vineyards and grapes which were very healthy overall. Vines produced lower bunch masses with smaller berries and concentrated flavours promising good wines.

 

About the harvest: The Shiraz grapes were handpicked in the fresh hours of the early morning from a selection of cool vineyard sites in the Stellenbosch region.

 

In the cellar: The wine was matured for twelve months in old French oak barrels to maintain the freshness of this varietal. Fermentation took place at cooler temperatures to ensure gentle extraction of fruit flavours.

A big beefy stew such as oxtail, grilled or roast beef especially served rare or with a pepper sauce, Barbeque, especially spareribs.
