The Tin Mine Red (1.5L) 2015

R270.00

Characteristics
Type – Red
Style – Dry
Body – Full
Taste – Fragrant

Purple red in colour, with the nose that exudes aromas of violets, dried spices and concentrated black prunes with a slow release of red cranberry and dark chocolate. The palate impresses with density on entry matched with persistent yet supple tannins – a multi-layered wine. This texture is perfectly offset by a balanced acidity that allows for a remarkable length of finish.

In The Vineyard
These vineyards are all situated on South westerly and westerly facing slopes ranging in altitude from 100m – 200m above sea level. All the vines are trellised on a seven-wire hedge system that allows for perfect containment of the sometimes vigorous growth habits of the Shiraz and Grenache varieties. Pruned to two-bud spurs, allowing for 16 – 18 bearers per running meter.
