in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from low yield, trellised vineyards growing mainly in the Darling area with a small percentage hailing from Stellenbosch. These vineyards are grown on south to south westerly slopes on deep rich soils and are managed under dryland conditions, thus no irrigation was applied. The yield of these vines varies from 2-5 ton/ha on the older vines up to 7 ton/ha on the younger vines.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand from early to late February at between 19-23,5° Balling.
