Syrah/Mourvedre/Grenache, ‘Night Sky’, Fable Mountain Vineyards

60% Syrah, 25% Mourvèdre, 15% Grenache

The fruit for “Night Sky” comes mainly from the Fable Mountain Estate Vineyards in Tulbagh, with a portion of Grenache coming from the Swartland. Once the Grenache on the farm comes into full production, the aim is that this wine will be 100% estate. The grapes are harvested early in the morning and transferred into either small concrete fermenters, open top 500L barrels, or small stainless steel fermenters. 30% whole clusters are used in fermentation, which begins naturally with indigenous yeasts. The wine ages for 24 months in 33% new 500L oak barrels.
