Vineyards
Vineyards: The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Paarl and Stellenbosch areas. Planted between 1990 and 1998, the vines are grown in soil originating from decomposed granite on south-westerly to westerly facing slopes, situated some 300m above sea level. Grafted onto nematode-resistant rootstock Richter 99, R110 and 101-114, they are grown under dryland conditions and, when necessary, receive supplementary irrigation.

About The Harvest

The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 23° to 24.5° Balling during February and March.

In The Cellar

The fruit was crushed and fermented on the skins in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 25ºC to 28ºC for two weeks. After malolactic fermentation the wine was oaked for 12 months.
