International Wine Challenge 2012 - Commended
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 grapes were picked between 21°C and 23°C B. The juice , which received no skin contact, was fermented n stainless stell tanks between 13°C and 15°C to preserve the fruit flavours.
