Eikendal Charisma 2019

R126.00

(R756.00 for 6 x 750ml)

Charisma is a vision born through Cellar Master Nico Grobler’s travel experiences over the world. Shiraz (Rhône Valley) contributes a lean, fresh structure with spicy undertones. Petit Verdot (Bordeaux) ads the richness of blueberries while the Sangiovese (Italy) component adds a light character with clean fruity flavours on the palate creating a boldly seductive and elegant wine.

• Sugar loading and sequential harvesting is used to determine picking phases.
• Shiraz – Mature fruit picking.
• Petit Verdot – 50% Fresh Fruit Picking; 50% Mature Fruit Picking.
• Sangiovese – 100% Fresh Fruit Picking.
• Pre-dawn water leaf potential used as an irrigation indicator.

Vinification:
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 and Petit Verdot go into 500ℓ old Burgundian barrels and the Sangiovese will be blended into the previous vintage Charisma – meaning, for example, in Charisma 2018 the Shiraz and Petit Verdot are 2018 vintage but the Sangiovese is the 2019 vintage. The idea with this is to blend that beautiful freshness and Italian passion into the wine. Shiraz and Petit Verdot are aged for 12 months before blending and bottling.
