ageing : Cellar for another three to seven years to enjoy a truly voluptuous wine.

in the vineyard : This wine comprises one hundred percent Sauvignon Blanc fruit from bush vines in the prime Koelenhof area of Stellenbosch.

in the cellar : The grapes were harvested in the early morning to ensure coolness, then crushed and lightly pressed. After this, the must was cold settled for two days before being inoculated with a selected yeast culture. Forty percent of the wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks and the remaining sixty percent was barrel fermented; half in new wood and half in second fill - a combination of French and American oak. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was further matured on the lees for seven months before being blended, lightly filtrated, and bottled.
