About this product

Decanter Magazine International Trophy Winner Rhone Varietal

Mappinga Shiraz is made from individually selected bunches, of which 25% are placed in open-top fermenters, with the remainder destemmed and poured on top. A wild-yeast fermentation is followed by an extended, three-week maceration prior to pressing off and returning to tank for settling after malolactic fermentation is completed. A delicious, ambitious, cooler-climate Shiraz, with floral lift on the sweet nose alongside a twist of black pepper and dark cherry fruit. Ideally this needs a few more years rest in bottle, by which time it will be absolutely singing, but thereÂs still buckets of appeal right now, with its velvety tannins and liquorice-tinged fruit"
