Maimai Syrah 2016




Fruit for this Syrah comes from our vineyard in the Bridge Pa Triangle site where we have planted three clones that all provide different characteristics to the wine. Free draining soils and hot summer days allow this fruit to reach optimal ripeness delivering complex fruity driven styles. Dark Broody intense in colour of deep garnet red. Lovely lifted Cocoa notes with sweet spicy notes reminiscent of Xmas cake. Ripe black fruits and cherries in the early palate then builds into an intense and spicy wine with a broad mouth feel. Sweet spicy notes linger on the palate. Machine harvested the grapes were destemmed into open fermenters. Pumped over and plunged 4 times a day during fermentation and then every day post fermentation to ensure soft tannin structure. 24 days on skins before pressing to tank and then barrel aging in French oak before filtering and bottling
