AWARDS

in the vineyard : South Africa's vineyards are mostly situated in the Western Cape near the coast. This is the southernmost region of the African continent, and has a Mediterranean type climate and diverse soils perfectly suited to quality grape production

This was among the trickiest of Cape vintages. It was hot and exceptionally dry. Grape ripening generally was early by 2 -3 weeks and often uneven, compounding uneven spring budburst. Exceptionally small berries resulted in concentrated flavours and promising colours.

about the harvest: Harvesting took place from February till the beginning of March.
