Label Detail
Cape Jazz Shiraz is Cape Town’s very own style of jazz, but it combines things from just about everywhere; the carnival, the church, Africa, America. The essence of Cape Jazz is unpredictability.

in the vineyard : The Cape Jazz Shiraz is made from Shiraz grapes sourced from various vineyards, including sites on the Solms-Delta farm.

in the cellar : Style of Wine: Pètillant. A cross between an Intalian Lambrusco and an Australian sparkling Shiraz.
Vinification: Shiraz grapes harvested at 18° Balling, slow fermented, with a touch of wood. No malolactic fermentation to retain high acid, which balances the underlying sweet note. Celebratory fizz added.
Maturation: Oak chips, for a smoother mouth feel.
