Syrah 'IRON', Mullineux

Syrah 'IRON', Mullineux
  • 100% Syrah
  • Sourced from a parcel on the rolling hills outside of Malmesbury, rich, gravelly Koffieklip soils
  • This exposed site is the earliest ripening of all of their Syrahs, and gives insight to the quality of the vintage ahead
  • Hand harvested while the morning was still cool
  • 100% whole cluster Syrah was foot crushed into open top 500L barrel, where hand punch downs took place to encourage natural and gentle extraction during the indigenous fermentation
  • 4 weeks of maceration, then pressed to the same barrels that they were fermented in
  • Aged for 12 months in 500L French oak barrels, 50% new, followed by another 10 months in 200L Foudre
  • Bottled aged for 9 months prior to release
