100% Shiraz grapes were harvested from selected vineyard blocks and cold-soaked for 2 to 3 days at 13 - 14C. Alcoholic fermentation was completed after 15 days in stainless steel tanks. The free-run juice was barrelled down with malolactic fermentation and maturation taking place in a combination of 20% first fill French oak barrels and the balance in second and third fill barrels. The wine matured for 14 months in barrel before blending.
Spier Seaward Shiraz
The Seaward Shiraz offers beautiful layered aromas of mulberry, violets and subtle pepper and anise. The mid-palate is balanced with concentrated fruit flavours and smooth, dense tannins.
