In The Vineyard

The grapes were sourced from matured trellised vineyards in the Paarl, Darling, Durbanville and Stellenbosch areas. Planted between 1990 and 1998, the vines are grown in decomposed granite on south-westerly facing slopes, situated at altitudes of 50m to 150m above sea level. The vines, grafted onto nematode-resistant rootstocks Richter 99 and R110, are grown under dryland conditions and supplementary irrigation is allowed when required.


About The Harvest

The grapes were harvested at 23º to 24,5º 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 10 to 14 days. Upon completion of malolactic fermentation the wine was matured in contact with French oak for a period of 12 months.
