Mount Abora The Abyssinian

New

In imagining The Abyssinian we took our cue from the masters of Burgendy and as expressed in the wines of Crozes-Hermitage icon, Alain Graillot – a Northern Rhone Ranger by domicile, but a Burgundian at heart, making wines that are luminous and bright with lower alcohol levels and a strong mineral core.

In imagining The Abyssinian we took our cue from the masters of Burgendy and as expressed in the wines of Crozes-Hermitage icon, Alain Graillot – a Northern Rhone Ranger by domicile, but a Burgundian at heart, making wines that are luminous and bright with lower alcohol levels and a strong mineral core.

The Abyssinian is a blend of Mourvedre (47%), Cinsaut (32%), and Shiraz (21%) made from hand-harvested grapes off old bush vines. The Swartland grapes were crushed and fermented on stalks and skins in open fermenters. Natural fermentation was allowed and post-fermentation hot-soaking was done to integrate tannins and natural acids. The wines were matured separately in a collection of older French oak barrels of varying sizes for 12 months.
