in the vineyard : 

The grapes were sourced from three sites, one in Darling, second in Durbanville and third in Stellenbosch. All three, between the ages of five and nine years old at picking, are established in red/yellow Tukulu/Covelly soils with good water-holding capacity and no compactness and thus ideal for root penetration. Fruit from the Groenekloof ward in Darling contributed 61% to the blend, with vines in Durbanville delivery 34%, and those in Stellenbosch the final 5%.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand 23° balling.

in the cellar : 
Each block was individually vinified, with some receiving up to six weeks skin contact to enhance flavour extraction and to temper the acidity. After fermentation at 12°C , the wine was left on the fermentation lees to enriched the mouthfeel.
