Kershaw Elgin Syrah, Clonal Selection, Elgin, 2016

Lot: 1065 Supplier: RICHARD KERSHAW WINES Country/Region: South Africa /Elgin Major Grape: Syrah

A vibrant wine with mellow spicy aromas, fresh red fruits, vanilla cream, blueberries and mint. It is soft and juicy on the palate with ripe blackberry flavours and redcurrants. It is elegant, medium bodied with soft supple tannins. Syrah grapes cultivated on five small parcels in Elgin were hand-picked between March 17 and 23, 2016. After de-stemming and sorting, the uncrushed Syrah grapes were dropped into open top fermenters with no use of pumps. After a three-day maceration, a spontaneous fermentation started and gentle punching down of the skins was carried out for 17 to 21 days. The wine was racked to barrel for malolactic using barrels from a number of artisanal coopers from Burgundy and Rhône. 46% of the oak was new with the balance second and third fill. The wine was matured in oak for 17 months.
