Mullineux Kloof Street Red 2018

13% abv

The spicy perfumed nose has undertones of dark fruits. Each variety in the blend adds balance to the wine, filling your palate. Tinta Barocca brings tannin, Cinsault brings perfume, Carignan brings freshness, Grenache brings fruit character, and the Syrah ties it all together.
44% Tinta Barocca, 44% Syrah, 7% Grenache, 4% Cinsault, 1% Carignan

Grapes for the 2018 Kloof Street red come from eight sustainably farmed vineyard parcels in different parts of the Swartland, aged 12-40 years: Two parcels of Syrah and one parcel of Cinsault in the stony Shale and Schist based soils of Kasteelberg; and one parcel of dry land, bushvine Syrah, one Carignan, one Grenache and a single parcel of gnarly old dry farmed Tinta Barocca bush vine, all in the decomposed Granite of the Paardeberg, and one parcel of Mourvèdre grown on the rolling, iron-rich soils west of Malmesbury.

Grapes are chilled in the cold room, where after they are destemmed to tank and around 25% whole bunches are added. Minimal SO2 is added and, as with all our wines, no other additions are made. The must is initially pigeaged once a day. After about 4 days, fermentation begins with indigenous yeasts, and the wine is pigeaged once or twice a day. Temperatures are not allowed to exceed 28°C. Total maceration is between 4 to 6 weeks. The wine is then drained and pressed to barrel for malolactic fermentation. The different parcels are racked in Spring to blend the wine, which is then returned to barrel.
Maturation is for 11 months in 3rd and 4th fill French oak 225L barrels & 500L demi-muids
