in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Durbanville, Stellenbosch, Paarl, and Slanghoek areas. The vines, planted between 1969 and 1998, are grown in Clovelly, Hutton, Tukulu and Oakleaf soils at altitudes ranging between 80m and 120m above sea level. Grafted onto nematode-resistant rootstock Richter 99 and 101-14, they received supplementary irrigation from an overhead sprinkler system.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested at 20° to 22° Balling during January and mid-February.

in the cellar : The fruit was crushed, settled for 36 hours at 10° C and then cool-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for a period of two to three weeks at 15° C. The wine was racked and the final blend created following the completion of alcoholic fermentation.
