in the vineyard : Viticulturist: Eben Archer
The vineyards are situated on the only south-facing portion of land on the property, planted at an altitude of 170 metres above sea-level. Grown in a combination of decomposed granite and Table Mountain sandstone, the 16-year old vines are now at full maturity. They were pruned to maintain a yield of 4,82 tons per hectare.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand in mid-February between 22,6° and 24,7° Balling.

in the cellar : Winemaker: Guy Webber
The grapes were destalked and crushed before separating the juice from the skins. The juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at between 14° and 16°C over two weeks.

Lees contact was allowed for three months after completion of alcoholic fermentation, with a racking enabling the wine to clarify naturally for four weeks before bottling.
