Tim Atkin SA Wine Report 2021 - 92 Points

Cornelius, or Mr May as he was affectionately called, planted and pruned many a vine here at Muratie Wine Estate. His attention to detail, knowledge of the weather pattern (long before was incredible. He taught us that whenever we saw a silver cloud lying on the South West facing side of Simonsberg Mountain, it would rain in two days' time. Today still, in memoriam, we have yet to prove him wrong.

in the vineyard : Grenache Noir is traditionally a Southern Rhône cultivar but originates from Spain. No wonder it suits our terroir seamlessly. We practice traditional dry land viticulture on these vines at 368m above sea level and receive low yields. This combination drives the high intensity of flavours.

in the cellar : Fermented in half ton stainless steel open fermenters. Half of the batch was spontaneous whole berry fermentation. After initial fermentation, the wine was basket pressed and then taken to barrel for malolactic fermentation. Aged for 18 months in 500L French Oak barrels.
