About this wine

The grapes to produce the Strawberry Fields Graceland are de-stemmed into open fermenters. The skins are hand plunged 4 times per day. After 8 days the wine is pressed then pressed wine and free run are combined. It is then racked to oak barrels where malolactic fermentation takes place. Named for the strawberry characteristics of the Shiraz and the surrounding strawberry fields, this red blend from Stellenbosch is made up of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.
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.
