Description

2018 proved to be a great vintage. All of the conditions aligned favourably and Mother Nature cooperated resulting in ripe, concentrated and complex Syrah fruit. All grapes for this wine were handpicked from the Terrace and Silver Bridge Vineyards. Vineyard management and weather conditions resulted in yields of only 2 tons per acre.

Like all Kacaba wines the Signature Series, Reserve Syrah 2018 started with hand harvesting. All grapes were hand sorted, gently destemmed, and left as whole berries for open top fermentation. The grapes were cold soaked to extract colour, flavours and aromatics from the skins before introducing yeast to start fermentation. During fermentation tanks were hand plunged 4 times a day to further the extraction of colour and flavour. After fermentation the wine was pressed off the skins and moved to a mixture of new and second fill French and American oak barrels to complete malolactic fermentation & continue the aging process.
