Acta Non Verba Shiraz 2021

59,50 (incl. BTW)

This limited release Shiraz is selected from Anvers best parcels of the vintage. The 2021 vintage combines the vibrant berry and spice flavors of Adelaide Hills Shiraz with the richness, dark plum and blackberry fruit of Langhorne Creek Shiraz. After 20 months maturation in French oak barrels this Shiraz is a wonderfully complex combination of elegance and power, rich yet with velvety tannins and a long persistent finish. Only 3000 bottles of this exclusive, hand crafted wine were produced .The grapes are manually harvested and de-stemmed into small, open concrete fermenters and fermented to dryness on skins with regular gentle pump-overs to extract colour and tannin. By de-stemming the grapes only, without putting through the crushing rollers a number of whole berries remain in the ferment which helps lift the fruit character. Following fermentation the grapes are pressed, settled and racked to a combination of new and 1 year old French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation. Following malolactic fermentation the wines are racked and put back to the same oak barrels on light lees. Only very fine grain French oak barrels are used with medium toast levels. After 12 months oak maturation a selection of the best barrels is made for the Tomorrowland Shiraz. The wine is then blended and returned to the oak barrels for a further 8 months to allow the components to fully integrate.

Wine factKan je wijn blijven bijhouden?

In tegenstelling tot wat vaak wordt gedacht, verbeteren de meeste wijnen niet door ze te bewaren. Moderne wijnmakers proberen hun producten ook drinkklaar of op zijn minst drinkbaar op de markt te brengen.Uiteraard zijn er wel wijnen die  een enorm potentieel hebben en pas na heel wat jaren hun rijke gelaagdheid ten volle etaleren.  De groten der aarde vallen natuurlijk in deze categorie en in dit geval is prijs vaak wel een indicatie van potentieel.Om het eenvoudig te houden: save the best and drink the rest!
