KWV Classic Collection Shiraz 2014

This vibrant Shiraz shows upfront fruit sweetness with aromas of plum, dried spice and blackcurrant with notes of violets, cigar box and red cherries. The palate is juicy and dimensional with a fruit driven mid palate, a well-integrated tannin structure and an elegant, lingering finish.

Enjoy this wine with red meat dishes, grilled chicken or a variety of hard cheeses.

in the vineyard : About the area
South Africa's vineyards are mostly situated in the Western Cape region, near the coast. This is the southernmost region of the African continent and has a Mediterranean type climate and diverse soils, perfectly suited to quality grape production.

Vintage conditions
Cool temperate conditions during the growing season resulted in small, concentrated berries. Veraison was even, therefore ensuring even ripening of grapes. The period was characterised by low disease incidence. During harvest, the cooler than average summer temperatures resulted in an excellent balance between sugar and acid. Lower yields deliver a well balanced wine that offers intense fruit flavours.

about the harvest: Harvest date: Middle February to middle March.

in the cellar : Maturation: 10 - 12 months in 300 litre third fill barrels, French and American oak.
