in the vineyard : Viticulturist: Eben Archer
The vineyards are situated on the only south-facing portion of land on the property, planted at an altitude of 170 metres above sea level. The vines, which are grafted on Richter 110 Phylloxera resistant rootstock, received supplementary irrigation.

Grown in a combination of decomposed granite and Table Mountain sandstone, the 16-year old vines are now at full maturity. The vines were pruned to maintain a yield of 4.82 tons per hectare.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand in mid-February at between 22.6° and 24.7° Balling with an average yield of 4.82 tons/ha.

in the cellar : After harvesting the grapes were destalked and crushed before separating the juice from the skins to avoid tannin extraction. Fermentation took place at between 14° and 16°C in stainless steel tanks.

Lees contact was allowed for three months after completion of alcoholic fermentation, with a racking enabling the wine to clarify naturally for four weeks before bottling.
