Production information

Producer: Purple Heron

This wine is named after the vibrant Purple Heron, which is a frequent visitor to Paarl, favouring the region’s unique biodiversity as a breeding ground. These single varietal Paarl wines, made by SAAM, make a great addition to any wine list.

Production note

The skins and juice undergo alcoholic fermentation together, and are mixed 4 times per day to ensure that maximum colour and flavour is extracted. Malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with different amounts of French oak staves inside. The wine is then aged for another 6 months on the staves until the right fruit oak balance is achieved.
