Mía Shiraz 2017

Mía Shiraz 2017
Mía Shiraz 2017
This dark, ruby coloured wine has an intense mix of blackberry and cassis on the nose. The pallet start off
with flavours of ripe prune and dark chocolate, under pinned by a light smokiness with well integrated
oak and soft, silky tannins. This is a perfectly balanced wine that should be enjoyed in good company.

Vinification
The grapes are harvested by hand into bins the morning of 07 March 2017 at 25.0˚B. The grapes are then
cooled before they are hand sorted and lightly crushed. The grapes are cold soaked for 48 hours using
pectolytic enzymes to promote flavour and colour extraction. The juice is inoculated with yeast and
fermentation took place for 5 days at 24-27C. The juice and skin is punched down every 4 hours until it’s
pressed. The wine is transferred to 225L French oak barrels for Malolactic fermentation and 18 month
barrel maturation.

Food Pairing
Being a full-bodied wine with lots of structure it will accompany full flavoured dishes like lamb,
pork-belly and fillet very well. It will enhance most venison dishes especially Kudu fillet and will
certainly pair well with cheese, wild mushroom risotto and dark bitter chocolate.
