Spice Route Chakalaka

Chakalaka

37% Syrah, 21% Mourvedre 18% Carignan, 10% Petite Syrah, 10% Grenache and 4% Tannat. Shiraz was machine harvested in the early morning. The remaining fruit was hand harvested. Hand harvested grapes were destalked and lightly crushed and all fruit was fermented in open concrete fermenters. The wines were racked off and sent to barrel for malolactic fermentation and further ageing. The Mourvèdre component was matured in 50% American oak and 50% French oak, with all the remaining components going to French oak barriques (25% new). The components spent 15 months in barrel before being lightly filtered and bottled, unfined. Intense red-purple in the glass. Initial smoky cloves and savoury notes give way to a plum and black cherry nose with hints of sweet oak spice. Medium bodied with well-integrated oak and fruit, this wine has a smooth tannin structure and lingering spice flavours.
