in the vineyard : About the area
South Africa's vineyards are mostly situated in the Western Cape region, near to 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 cold, but late 2009 winter preceded the growing season, providing much needed rest to the
vineyards. Budding was earlier than expected, which resulted in an early start to the 2010 harvest. Above average rainfall was recorded during the growing season, resulting in increased disease pressure and lower vineyard yields. Up until the end of February, the harvest season was characterised by mild weather which created favourable conditions for slow ripening and the development of berry flavours. Grape quality in general was very good, promising a range of excellent wines from the 2010 vintage.

about the harvest: The 2010 harvest will be remembered for its erratic weather changes, which posed several challenges to winemakers and viticulturists alike.

Harvest Date: February

in the cellar : Total production: 850 000litres
