in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from one vineyard in the Stellenbosch area (Faure Brothers). The vineyard is about 3 kilometres from the ocean on a south facing slope where a cool ocean breeze prevails.

about the harvest: The grapes were hand harvested at 22.5 balling and delivered in small lug boxes to the cellar.

in the cellar : The grapes were whole bunch pressed, then cold settled and racked into 2nd fill French oak barrels. Fermentation was done 70% with natural yeasts and 30% with cultured yeasts. The wine did not undergo malolactic fermentation to keep its freshness and primary fruit. After five months the wine was filtered and bottled.
