Tasting Notes
Nose: Mulberries and whiffs of cinnamon, dried herbs and liquorice with very subtle spices in the background. Palate: Forward fruit at first, structured mid-palate, with lovely elegance, finishing with silky savoury tannins. The wine has a sinewy strength to keep it in perfect shape for 5 years.
Ageing Potential
The wine has a sinewy strength to keep it in perfect shape for ±5 years.
Blend Information
36% Syrah, 36 % Mourvedre and 28% Carignan
In The Vineyard

The fruit for the Syrah was selected from the rows of vines that showed the most fruit flavour uniformity. The Mourvedre and Carignan were selected from bush vines on farms in the Swartland region.

About The Harvest
Picked ripe at 25.5º Balling.
In The Cellar
The grapes were destemmed, without crushing and tipped into an open tank under carbon dioxide blanket. The grapes were cold soaked for roughly ten days until the natural yeast started to ferment the sugars. The wine finished fermentation on the skins, with punch downs and pump overs 4 times a day. The wine was then left for a further week on the skins stabilizing the tannins (totaling 30 days) before being pressed directly into barrels. Here the wine underwent Malolactic fermentation in 40% new and 60% 2nd and 3rd fill French oak barrels. The wine was aged for 18 months before being blended and bottled with a very coarse filtration.

Hoopenburg  Wines  –  Uniqueness in South Africa

Hoopenburg Wines, owned by the Schmitz family, is located in the heart of the Stellenbosch Winelands, encircled by the majestic Simonsberg mountain range, a region known as the Greater Simonsberg. This 80 hectare estate, where 35 hectares under vine, was founded in 1992 by wine maker Ernst Gouws and his wife Gwenda. Together, later joined by their children, with hard work and commitment they made a family dream come trough.  Since then, Hoopenburg Wines has won numerous top awards

The uniqueness of Hoopenburg Wines, is that its the only wine estate in South Africa where bush vines form 100% of the vineyard, resulting in a naturally lower yield and more fruit concentration. Nourished by pure underground water, the bush-vine vineyards produce grapes of exceptional taste and flavour. Believing in the principle of environmentally-friendly farming, Hoopenburg  Wines have converted some of their vineyard to organically grown blocks, while  the rest is farmed according to South Africa's IPW Scheme (Integrated Production of Wine).
