in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from trellised (90%) and bush vines (10%) in the Stellenbosch, Darling and Malmesbury areas situated at an altitude of 100 to 500 m above sea level. These vines grow mainly in deep red soils with some sandy loam on mainly south-facing vineyard slopes.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand from end January to mid February at between 19,1° and 24,7° Balling to offer a spectrum of ripeness from green and grassy flavours to the fuller, more tropical tastes. Yields were an average of 6 tons per hectare.
