in the vineyard : Trellised vineyards in the Cape's prime growing areas are cooled by False Bay sea breezes during the summer, helping to slow down ripening and concentrate fruit flavours.

about the harvest: Grapes are hand-picked and delivered in lug boxes to the Zonnebloem cellar, where they are handled very gently to preserve inherent fruit flavours.

in the cellar : The juice was given two weeks skin contact to enrich colour and extract flavour. Fermented in stainless steel tanks at a gentle low temperature, the wine was racked for malolactic fermentation. It was gently oaked, matured for 12 months before bottling.
