2019 Somesay Shiraz, Harry Hartman

Western Cape, South AfricaVintage: 2019

Harry Hartman wines are new to these shores and we are delighted to be among the first to list these fabulous wines in the UK.  Made in tiny quantities these wines are going to be highly sought after very quickly!

The 2019 Somesay Shiraz is an extraordinary wine made from small parcels of Syrah from the Cederberg and Stellenbosch regions.

Syrah is known to perform well across the diverse wine regions of South Africa, offering the robust fruit expression of a typical Shiraz or the genteel savouriness of a Syrah. Ancient soil plays a pivotal role in the wines’ ability to express the essence of a place, and the decision of blending regions presents a multi-layered wine, executed with flair and finesse.

In the glass, the wine introduces itself with delicate notes of potpourri, violets, and sandalwood, balanced with the comforting aroma of cranberry shortbread and warm French patisserie. The palate is a vibrant expression of young plum, red currants, cherry, and dried fig with a subtle savoury edge of thyme and cedar.  The wine was aged in large Foudre and older oak barrels which complements the fruit as well as adding a textured mid-palate.   This is a beautifully executed wine that honours both the Old and New World.

Description

Harry Hartman is a group of friends obsessed with wine who have a deep and passionate love for the Cape, its terroirs and the talents and characters of her people.

All of which have inspired them to showcase and share with friends around the world what they believe to be some of the Capes’ most extraordinary wines, stories and personalities.

Plenty of batches are fermented separately to ensure complexity in this wine with the whole clusters fraction per tank ranging from 30-100%. Both S/S and oak foudres are used for fermenta- tion with pigeage 2-3 times per day. All fermentations were done spontaneously with natural yeast. The malolactic fermentation was also done spontaneously. Maturation took place in a combination of used French oak barrique and foudres for 11 months.
