in the vineyard : About the area
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.

Vintage conditions
A mild spring and early summer combined with low disease pressure, set the stage for a promising season and resulted in healthy grapevines. The ripening period was characterized by intermittent periods of very warm and cool weather. Even though a challenging season for viticulturists and winemakers alike, a characteristic wine was crafted, showing good balance and fruit.

Winemaker's comments
Specially chosen grapes were havested at optimal ripeness. Before maturation the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
