2015 is widely regarded as one of the all-time great vintages. The growing season was long and slow with just enough rain at the right moments. No disease pressure was experienced and we picked the Shiraz from 3-5 March 2015. Bottling took place on 23 November 2016.

The grapes were all selected from Vergelegen’s Rooiland vineyards, planted on the north to north-westerly slopes.

Grapes were hand-picked and de-stemmed BUT not crushed. The de-stemmed grapes were cooled to 8°C and ‘cold soaked’ for 168 hours. Fermentation took place at 26°C followed by a 28 day maceration on the skins.

After malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine went into 25% new French oak barrels for 17 months.

Food pairing
