in the vineyard : Devon Valley, Stellenbosch. Our single Sauvignon Blanc vineyard lies adjacent to the farm dam on the cool valley floor, which is often overlaid with a blanket of mist in the spring and summer mornings, resulting in ripening temperatures being up to 5C lower than vineyards on higher ground. This allows an extended ripening period resulting in luscious and healthy grapes.

about the harvest: The grapes were hand harvested at optimal ripeness.
