in the vineyard : Soil: Both cultivars are grown on some of the very best soils in the Swartland region. Both are sensitive to moist stress during the ripening period and are thus cultivated on deep, red Hutton-type soils with good moist retention properties.
Climate: The Swartland falls within the coastal winter rainfall area. Warm, dry summers, moderated by cool Atlantic breezes.
Annual rainfall: 400mm average.

about the harvest: The grapes are from unirrigated bush vines with low yields and are hand harvested at optimum ripeness.
