Tasting Notes:

2015 was a very mild summer and resulted in quite a special vintage which we can see in the Nebbiolo. Slightly darker in colour than the 2014; the bouquet displays notes of rose petal, dried apricot and fynbos along with notes of leather and cherries. The wine displays the natural tart acidity and grippy tannins of Nebbiolo, accompanied with hints of sour cherries, raspberries and wild strawberry. The wine shows beautiful fruit and floral characters in youth but will develop well over the next 7 to 10 years and will greatly reward those who resist it’s youthful charm.

The oldest registered farm in the Cape, Steenberg Vineyards produces a range of much-loved wines through a process of environmentally considerate and dedicated winemaking.

The grapes were harvested at a sugar level of 24°B

The grapes are crushed into stainless steel fermentation tanks where they fermented at 27°C for approximately 15 days. The juice was inoculated with a yeast strain selected for the development of the natural characters in the Nebbiolo grape. Two pump-overs were done per day to extract colour and tannin.

The wine underwent malolactic fermentation in barrel and thereafter matured in 500l barrels with 17% first fill, 10% second fill, 20% third fill, 31% fourth fill and 22% fifth fill french oak barrels for 21 months.
