Rising River Red Blend
Grenache Noir 35%, Shiraz 25%, Cinsault 20%, Mourvèdre 20%
The wine is medium bodied with a lingering finish and aromas of violets and raspberries with a hint of spice.
Harvesting & Fermentation:
All the grapes used to make this wine were selected from top quality vineyards in the Western Cape and picked at optimal ripeness.
All the grapes were de-stemmed and then transferred to open top fermenters as whole berries. 10% of the Shiraz grapes were fermented as whole bunches to add more structure to the final blend. The wines were fermented separately in open top fermenters with daily punch downs. Thereafter the separate varieties were matured in French oak barrels for 12 months before blending.
Ready for your enjoyment until 2025.
