2010 Shiraz, Delaire Graff Estate

2010 conditions, as challenging as they were, resulted in healthy grapes with great flavour and analysis.  Winemakers are more than satisfied with the quality of the grapes that were harvested, even though the yields were down.

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

Matured for 12 months in older French and American oak barrels, to maintain the lovely freshness of this varietal.  Fermentation took place at cooler temperatures, around 24� C.

Appellation
Western Cape
