In The Vineyard

Annelie Viljoen (Viticulturist)
The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Devon Valley, Stellenbosch Kloof, Helderberg and Jonkershoek areas. Grown on slopes that face in south and south-westerly directions to ensure cooler microclimates, the vineyards yielded an average of 8 to 10 tons per hectare.

About The Harvest

The grapes were harvested by hand from mid to end March at 25° Balling.
Yield: 8 - 10 tons per hectare

In The Cellar

The Craft of Viniculture: Deon Boshoff (Cellar Master) / Bonny van Niekerk (Winemaker)
The grapes were harvested by hand in March at 25° Balling. Fermentation on the skins took place for 10 to 12 days. More than half of the wine was matured in 300-litre French oak barrels, medium-toasted and from a variety of coopers. The remaining portion of wine was left to mature on French and Hungarian oak staves in stainless steel tanks.
