in the vineyard : The 2012 conditions produced crops of notable quality. The cool harvest period and slow ripening of grapes resulted in smaller berries with intense colour, exceptional flavours and structure.

about the harvest: The grapes were 100% handpicked in the early hours of the morning from three premium wine regions: Olifantsrivier, Darling, Stellenbosch and Durbanville. This combination brings the unique flavours from each region in full harmony.

in the cellar : The grapes did not receive any skin contact and were gently pressed. Fermentation lasted nearly 3 weeks at 12?C and the wine was then left on primary lees for 6 weeks post fermentation.
