in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Durbanville, Paarl and Darling areas. The vines, ranging in age from 10 to 15 years and situated on mostly south to south-westerly facing slopes, received supplementary drip irrigation. Grafted onto phylloxera-resistant rootstocks Richter 99 and 101, the vines yielded an average of 8 to 10 tons per hectare.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand at 22º to 24º Balling during February and March.

in the cellar : After settling, the clean juice was racked prior to fermentation and inoculated. Once fermentation was under way, the fermenting juice was transferred to a combination of new and second-fill French oak barrels, where the wine remained on the lees for a period of six months.
