in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Groenekloof, Durbanville and Paarl areas. Ranging in age from five to nine years, the vineyards are grown in red/yellow Tukulu/Clovelly soils ideal for root penetration due to its good water-holding capacity and limited compactness. Fruit from the Groenkloof ward in Darling contributed 61% to the blend, with vineyards in Durbanville delivering 30% and those in Paarl, the final 9%.

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

in the cellar : Each block was individually vinified, with some receiving skin contact for up to six hours to enhance flavour extraction and to temper the acidity. The fruit was crushed and cool-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 12ºC after which the wine was left on the lees thereby contributing to an enhanced mouthfeel.
