Zevenwacht The Tin Mine Red 2017
Wine Style:
Full bodied

When to Enjoy:
A superb dinner accompaniment

How to Serve:
Room temperature or slightly chilled, 16-18 degrees

Our meal suggestions:
A hearty stew with root vegetables or a roasted leg of venison served with caramelized onions and a dark cherry sauce.

The wine itself:
The wine exudes aromas of smokey black plum and cranberry opening to raspberry and peppery spice. The palate impresses with density on
entry matched with persistent yet supple tannins - a multi layered wine.
This texture is perfectly offset by balanced acidity that allows for a remarkable length of finish.

What about the grapes?
Shiraz 56%, Mourvedre 31 %, Grenache 13 %

And the vineyards (terroir):
These vineyards are all situated on South westerly and westerly facing slopes ranging in altitude from 100m - 200m above sea level. All the
vines are trellised on a seven-wire hedge system that allows for perfect containment of the sometimes vigorous growth habits of the Shiraz
and Grenache varieties. Pruned to two-bud spurs, allowing for 16 - 18 bearers per running meter.

How was it made:
All cultivars were fermented separately in open red wine fermenters.
The fermentation temperatures hovered around 26° C peaking at ±28° C. Regular pump overs helped with extracting intense colour and soft,
pliable tannins. After fermentation the wine was pressed and racked to 2nd, 3rd & 4th French oak 500l barrels. The different components
were aged for 12-16 months before blending.

Should this wine age / mature:
A delicious wine to be enjoyed now or over the next five years.
