AWARDS
Decanter 2011 - Gold Award
in the vineyard : (Viticulturist: Bennie Liebenberg)
The grapes were sourced from well-established, premier vineyards in the Stellenbosch, Malmesbury and Robertson areas. These trellised vines were planted between 100-250m above sea level, and in the case of Stellenbosch, face south to south-west to take advantage of maritime winds. The vineyards are not irrigated, allowing controlled water stress to limit the yield and intensify the flavour.

about the harvest: 

The winemaking (winemaker: Pieter Badenhorst)
The grapes were all harvested by hand from mid-February to early March at between 22,5º and 24º Balling.

in the cellar : 

They received no skin contact. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks, on oak chips for six months and stirred every 2 weeks.
