Shiraz 2017 – Graceland

Full Body Red

This is reminiscent of cooler European style Syrah, with white pepper, abundant raspberries thus making for a good food match. The wine is subtle and does not overpower delicate food flavours.

About this wine

The grapes to produce the Shiraz Graceland were handpicked between the end of February and the first week of March, in tonne batches. Wild yeast fermented for 8 days in open cement tanks. Mid ferment temperatures did not exceed 30 degrees. Matured in French oak for 24 month. The wine was bottled unfiltered and unfined.The vineyards, planted in 1999 in two separate blocks, have differing soil water holding capacities which enables us to give different amounts of water at different times. Elevation 120m – 150m. Soil type is mainly heavier klapmuts, over decomposed granite. Clay lies 1.5 – 2m Down.
Graceland, owned by Susan and Paul McNaughton, is a family run boutique winery, specialising in red wine. Susan, the driving force behind the winery, takes on the roles of marketer, winemaker and viticulturist whilst Paul attends to the farm’s administration and financial needs. During harvest, everyone lends a hand, even the children and dogs. The Graceland wine making philosophy starts in the vineyard where no insecticides are used and minimal spraying. The most important decision each year is when to pick and this is done in small batches according to the microclimate which determines when each row becomes optimally ripe. As to winemaking, the winery is very natural in its approach: only grapes and nitrogen. Sulphur dioxide levels are considerably lower than average.
