The Family Tree honors the rich tapestry of people and places that were integral in the Backsberg
legacy. The Pumphouse was a humble concrete structure, traditionally located high up on the
slopes of the mountain. A vital life-source for happy healthy vines, this structure epitomizes Backsberg’s
approach to winemaking, being unassuming but extraordinary.

VITICULTURE Grown in weathered granite and Chocolate Cake soils on high elevation mountain
slopes with cooling breezes from the Atlantic. This ensures optimal berry ripening. Open-armed 22
year-old lyre trellised vines provide maximum sun exposure with carefully considered drip irrigation
encouraging ideal flavor development. 8 tons/Ha delivers concentrated, high-quality fruit.

VINIFICATION Soft-skinned Shiraz was fermented warm for 10 days. It was then pressed to finish
fermentation in barrel. Aging occurs for 14 months in small French and American oak barriques.

TASTING NOTE On the nose expect old spice, cedar and vanilla. Exhibiting a wonderful velvety depth, this is a powerhouse of a wine with flavors of ripe plum, black cherry, mulberry, liquorice and spiced fruit
cake. A generous wine that just keeps giving. Pair with hearty stews and rich roasts
