Raka Biography Shiraz 2009

Appearance: Clean ruby colour.
Bouquet and Palate: Excellent balance between well integrated oak and fruit. White pepper dominates the nose, the wine explodes into ripe plush fruit on the palate. Pure drinking pleasure.

  • about the harvest: All grapes were hand picked.

    in the cellar : 

    All were sorted twice before a pure yeast culture was inoculated. The juice was pumped over the skins 3 - 5 times per day for 5 days. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was drained off the primary lees and transferred to a resting tank. Malolactic fermentation and a brief settling period preceded the transfer of the wine to a combination of 225 litre barrels of French (85%) and American (15%) oak types for 12 months
