ageing : Enjoy now.

in the vineyard : Fruit sourced from the Stellenbosch region. Cool Mediterranean climate with loamy clay soils. Vines are trellised on a 5 wire hedge system.

about the harvest: Pinotage blocks were harvested quite early to preserve the primary fruit characters and fresh acidity of the final product (22° B). The Shiraz is picked about two weeks later which will add mainly to strawberry pink colour profile, rounder palate and aftertaste.
