AWARDS
Michelangelo CCL International Wine Awards 2010: Silver Medal
in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Groenekloof and Durbanville regions. Ranging in age from 5 to 9 years, the vineyards are grown in red and yellow Tukulu and Clovelly soils ideal for root penetration due to its good water-holding capacity and limited compactness. Fruit from the Groenekloof ward in darling contributed 80% to the blend with vines in the Durbanville region delivering the final 20%.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 22° to 24° Balling from February to March.

in the cellar : Each block was individually vinified, with some receiving skin contact for up to six hours to enhance flavour extraction and to temper the acidity. The fruit was crushed and cool-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 13-14° C after which the wine was left on the lees thereby contributing to better mouthfeel and ageing potential.
