Rolf Binder Christa Rolf Shiraz Grenache 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The various batches of grapes are kept separate during crushing, fermentation and barrel-ageing, and then blended to taste for bottling. The blend ratio is 70% Shiraz and 30% Grenache; a combination that has consistently worked well in our years of experience with this particular fruit. To retain the luscious and rich fruit flavours, we use mostly older shaven oak, with about 10% newer oak. The true key to the wine is the Grenache. In the years Shiraz is strong and bold, the Grenache is somewhat subdued but in others, the Grenache leaps out with spice cherries and strong tannins.

Rolf Binder Wines:
The vines in the vineyard were pruned and trellised in November (Spring), and their long shoots needed to be trained along the trellis. This was a vigorous growing time for the vines, and leading up to this vintage, we saw some of them already producing the small bunches of inflorescences (flowers) that will eventually become fruit.
