Product Description

KWV The Mentors Shiraz is an expressive wine. On the nose it has upfront plum, soury cherry and dark chocolate aromas with savoury nuances. The palate is rich velvety and smooth with hint sof pepper spice.

Winemaking: The grapes for this wine were harvested optimally ripe and sorted in the cellar to ensure that only the best fruit is used for fermentation. 25% of the blend was fermented as whole berries. The wine fermented naturally. The wine was pressed off the skins before alcoholic fermentation was completed to prevent the extraction of hard and dry tannins. Malolactive fermentation lasted 3 weeks in the barrel; where after the wine was racked and placed back into barrels for maturation. The wine was racked twice during its 18 months in the barrel.
