AWARDS

ageing : Drink now or over the next 2 years.

in the vineyard : Planted on the west-facing slope of the Helderberg Mountain. Cool breezes due to proximity to False Bay and cold Atlantic Ocean. Drip irrigation & trellising on deep well-drained Hutton and Clovelly soils.

about the harvest: Harvested early in the morning when grapes are still cool. Freshness added from first harvest from new vines.

in the cellar : Complexity due to lees contact and older vines. Grapes are de-stemmed, chilled and given skin contact for 12 hours, then lightly pressed. Cold-settled for 48 hours. Racked and inoculated with yeast. Cold-fermented. Left on fermentation lees (sur lie) for 3 months before bottling.
