Sea Mountain 'Limestone' Shiraz

|About Supplier||The Devils Peak & Limestone vineyards are in Robertson, a green paradise with 1700m mountains on either side, where unique limestone soils formed from shell deposits in ancient lakes. Limestone soils add great elegance to many wines & are rare to find outside the classic French vineyards of Champagne, Loire & Burgundy. The chalky soil is ideal for fruit and mineral character whilst the red shale on the hills gives the wine structure. The South Easter wind blows up from Table Mountain during the summer months, cooling the vineyards and keeping them healthy. Table Mountain acts like a catapult, as the wind powers around the mountain, over the Cape Flats, through the Hottentot Holland mountains and inland. The temperature falls from an average of 30 degrees at midday to 15 at night. This high thermic oscillation is key to quality, as it allows the vines to concentrate fruit flavours & acidity overnight.|
