in the vineyard : Spectacular panoramic views of Stellenbosch and Cape Town, cool hillside vineyards planted to classic varieties, and a modern family-run winery have combined to produce distinctive wines displaying the ripe concentrated fruity accessibility of the New World, with the complex elegance of classic wine styles.

Harvested from mature vineyards (12 – 19 years old) planted to selected Davis and Burgundian clones. The vineyards are situated on cooler south and east-facing slopes (250 - 310m above sea level). Vertical hedge trellising and low yields ensure a complex concentration of flavours. The vineyards are unirrigated.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested between 9 February and 9 March 2006 at between 22.1 and 23.7° Balling.
