ageing : Although accessible when young, this Shiraz has a good maturation potential of five to eight years.

in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Paarl, Durbanville, Philadelphia and Stellenbosch area. The vineyards are situated on slopes facing south to south-westerly at between 60 m and 80 m above sea level. The vines, grafted onto nematode resistant
rootstock Richter 99, 110 and 101-114, grow under dryland conditions and receive supplementary irrigation by means of an overhead sprinkler system.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 24° Balling during February and March.

in the cellar : They were crushed and then cool-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for two weeks at between 25° and 28°C. After malolactic fermentation the wine was matured in new, second and third-fill barrels for 12 to 18 months.
