in the vineyard : 

This Pinotage was made from specially selected grapes from the ultra-ripe harvest. From the start, our aim was to produce a Pinotage with intense fruit flavour and real character utilising quality grapes.

about the harvest: 

All fruit was hand harvested at optimum ripeness and gently pressed to retain aroma and flavour.

in the cellar : 

The wine was aged in small oak barrels, which added greater weight and complexity.

Oak maturation: 12 months
