All wines bottled under a “Slaley” label are made with a strong leaning to the classic. In practice this means that the wine is made in a fairly non-reductive fashion, with higher fermentation temperatures and longer macerations. Barrel aging is done in French oak (about thirty percent American oak is used in the Shiraz and Pinotage). The result is wine with less of a fruit forward component, but with higher extraction, which should be of interest to collectors, especially those with cellars or other means of ageing.
