Grapes of the highest quality were sourced from selected vineyards in the Paarl and Firgrove areas which contributes to the unique characteristics of the wine. These vineyards thrive in a combination of laterite and soil with yellow clay sub-layers.
The fruit was carefully handpicked in three batches, with the first batch ripening in Paarl. It was fermented for two weeks in closed conical shape tanks using the more delicate aerated pump-over method, ensuring softer tannins, delicate spicy flavours and a deep colour. The second and third batches from Firgrove were separately fermented using the pneumatic punch-down
method four times a day to produce more robust tannins with excellent structure and concentration. The three batches were then blended and allowed to undergo natural malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks before being racked three times and transferred into Oak barrels. Barrel maturation took place over a period of 13 months in 10% new American Oak, 10% in new French Oak and 80% in second and third fill French Oak barrel.
The De Grendel Shiraz is a great partner with Karoo lamb, a scrumptious homemade beef burger with grilled cheddar topping or mushroom risotto.
