The Esterhuysenia Beckii
In 2010 a rare succulent plant, the Esterhuysenia grahambeckii, was discovered on a cliff face of the Rooiberg, near Robertson in a section of the Graham Beck Private Nature Reserve. It has since officially been classified as a brand new subspecies of the pointy-leafed Esterhuysenia family. This delightful little plant, with its delicate rose pink petals, pays tribute to the memory of Mr Beck, whose conservation legacy paved the way for this remarkable discovery.

about the harvest: Grapes were harvested by hand in the second and third week of February.

in the cellar : The grapes were de-stemmed and left to cold macerate on the skins for 6 hours in horizontal stainless steel tanks at 10°C to extract a light pink colour. After this short maceration the grapes were pressed and fermented separately, at a cool 14°C to ensure a fresh primary fruit bouquet.
