All three cultivars are handpicked and cooled down. Only destemmed and not crushed. 10-15 day cold soaking before spontaneous fermentation. Shiraz: one pump over per day. Petit Verdot: two punch downs per day and Sangiovese: one walk through per day. After fermentation the wine is allowed to settle clean. Shiraz, Sangiovese and Petit Verdot go into 500ℓ old Burgundian barrels. Wine is aged for 10 months before blending and bottling.
Eikendal, Charisma, Stellenbosch, South Africa, 2020
The Charisma 2020 is an ingenious creation and red blend living up to its name. The Shiraz (Rhône Valley) lends a tight, fresh structure with aromatic and seasoned undertones. Petit Verdot (Bordeaux) contributes a rich berry character and the Sangiovese, in true Italian style, adds fruity flavours with flair on the palate. The result is a bold, charming, seductive and ultimately elegant wine.
