in the vineyard : The grapes for this wine originate from the farm Eensaamheid in the Agter-Paarl area. This award winning vineyard was planted in 1995 and is totally un-irrigated. The deep and very old Malmesbury shale soil allows roots to penetrate deep for optimum nutrition and moisture. The most advanced viticultural practices were and still are used in environmental friendly ways to enhance grape quality. Our grapes are tasted regularly during the ripening season to make sure we harvest at optimum ripeness for the best possible flavour and body in our wines. The average yield for this vineyard is 8 tons/ha. Sunny days, cool nights, and cooling sea breezes in the afternoon is very common to this area in the ripening period.
