MICHELE D'OR SHIRAZ 2017
This wine consists of only one cultivar, Shiraz. The grapes were handpicked. The grapes came in at 25 Balling, were destemmed and cold maturation lasted 48 hours. After cold maturation, the pulp was inoculated with a yeast strain and fermentation took place for a period of 15 days at a temperature of 25-26C. In this 15 day period regular (4 times per day) pump overs were exercised. The juice was pressed when the fermentation finished witch paved the road for Malolactic fermentation to start and finish in 25 days. The wine matured in 100% French oak barrels for a period of 12 months. After maturation, the wine was prepared for bottling.
