Winemaking Process

All components fermented separately and only blended before bottling. Shiraz and the Mourvedre were fermented in 5000L open top tanks with regular punchdowns throughout the fermentation process to maximise colour and flavour extraction from the skins. The Viognier was pressed and sent to 225l barrels for natural fermentation. A portion of the Viognier skins were added to the Shiraz tank to further extract the floral, spiciness from the Viognier.

Maturation

The Shiraz and Mourvedre spent 12 months in 225l French oak barrels, 3rd & 4th fill as not to overpower the delicate, elegant flavours in this blend. The Viognier fermented and matured in 225l French oak 2nd fill barrels for 6 months.

Tasting Comments

Arpeggio is a musical term which refers to a string of broken down notes which make up a chord. This wine combines notes of sweet cherry, mulberry and blackcurrant flavours combined with a subtle fragrance of spice. Each component selected for this wine adds wonderful fruit complexity alongside the integration of smooth French oak tannins.
A rich and piquant combination, complimented with grilled meat dishes, charcuterie, medium flavour cheese, pizza and pasta.

Volatile Acidity g/l   0.80
Free SO2 mg/l   26
Total SO2 mg/l   93
pH   3.82

Winemaking Process

Grapes all picked by hand and sorted mechanically using a vibration sorting table. The batch then goes through 2 days cold maceration in tank at between 5-10C in order to maximise flavour and colour extraction before fermentation. Fermentation is initiated by commercial yeast inoculation and is temperature controlled to 24C throughout the process. Post fermentation the wine is further matured on the skins for 2 weeks before a light pressing to separate wine from skins.

Maturation

Post fermentation, the wine is racked to French Oak barrels, 225L 3rd, 4th and 5th fill barrels. The use of oak is restrained as the focus of this Cabernet Sauvignon is to retain its clarity of fruit and dark, rich flavour profile. Duration of barrel maturation is 16 months.

Tasting Comments

A rich, ripe, full Cabernet Sauvignon with plenty of dark fruit, plums and black currant flavour characteristics. Restrained use of French oak allows the fruit of this wine to remain centre stage. The oak contributes a spicy, toasty, cigar box character to the wines mid palate and finish. Supple, easy accessible tannins give this wine structure and is paired beautifully to grilled red meats, mature cheese, venison and spicy tomato based stews and pastas.

Anura Brut 2017 - Methode Cap Classique

Appellation

Western Cape

Cultivars

Chardonnay 60% and Pinot Noir 40%

Analysis

Alc % by Vol   11.78
Residual Sugar g/l   3.4
Total Acid g/l   6.3
Volatile Acidity g/l   0.4
Total SO2 mg/l   28
pH   3.32

Winemaking Process

Grapes all picked by hand in the cool early morning. The Chardonnay component came from 2 blocks of vineyard, in different regions, one being Anura Vineyards, Simonsberg-Paarl and the other from the Robertson district. (The Pinot Noir portion all came from Anura). Bunches are lightly pressed whole; only using the cuvee (500L/ton). The juice is handled carefully with minimum exposure to oxygen to preserve the delicate flavours of the juice, with no sulphur added.

Maturation

15% of the total blend was fermented in 2nd and 3rd fill French oak barrels, the rest in stainless tanks. Bottled shortly after primary fermentation. After the second fermentation this wine was kept on the lees for 4 years or more before disgorgement.

Tasting Comments

An extremely dry Cap Classique made from a classic blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This sparkling wine brings together crisp green apple notes, cinnamon spice and a subtle biscuit, yeast character. Serve chilled and enjoy paired with fresh fruit, smoked trout or sushi.
