Kasteelberg – Shiraz


  – DOWNLOAD PDF

Limited release, single-vineyard Shiraz, from hand-selected grapes from the foothills of the majestic Kasteelberg Mountain, Kasteelberg Shiraz embodies excellent craftsmanship that transforms the harsh Swartland terroir into the pinnacle of our winemakers’ art.

The Swartland terroir is home to rich, nuanced, silky Shiraz and the 2016 Kasteelberg Shiraz is no exception. The wine is crafted from the best block of a single vineyard in rich granite soil. Once harvested, the grapes are hand-sorted and crushed in an open fermenter with up to 30% whole bunch fermentation. Fermentation is loving tended with regular hand-punch-downs and is followed by malolactic fermentation on the skins. The resultant wine is a true expression of Swartland terroir, loaded with rich black fruit, liquorice, black-currents and complex spice. Matured in new French barrels for 16 months, the Kasteelberg Shiraz is full-bodied with a rich, velvety tannin structure and long well-integrated finish.

 

PEAK PERFECTION

Just a few metres lower than Table Mountain, The Kasteelberg mountain range celebrates the discovery of Riebeek and the Kasteelberg mountains in 1661. Kasteelberg stands sentinel over the fertile valleys below. From the slopes of these mountains, hand-selected grapes are expertly crafted with care to produce rare and expressive wines.
