In The Vineyard

Annelie Viljoen (Viticulturist) 
The grapes were sourced from trellised, dryland and irrigated vineyards in the Stellenbosch, Stellenbosch Kloof, Devon Valley, Somerset West areas. Some of the vines are grown under dryland conditions while others are irrigated. Mostly south-west facing, they derive the maximum benefit from cooling maritime breezes that contribute to slow ripening of the grapes and concentrated fruit flavours.

About The Harvest

The grapes were harvested by hand at 25.5° to 26.5° Balling in February when fruit and tannins were fully ripened but the berries and skins still firm.

In The Cellar

Deon Boshoff (Cellar Master) / Bonny van Niekerk (Winemaker) 
Each vineyard block was individually vinified. After fermentation for 10 to 13 days, the wine was aged in a combination of small wood (55%) and in stainless steel tanks (45%). First- and second-fill 300-litre American, French and Hungarian oak barrels were used for maturation.
