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.

Exceptional quality wines were generally made from the 2006 harvest. It was warm to very warm with dry periods during ripening and harvest. The growing season was windy. The vigour of the vineyards was impaired and bunch and berry size was reduced. This favoured the production of top quality wines with concentrated flavours.

about the harvest: Harvesting took place in February 2007.
