in the vineyard : The 2013 conditions produced grapes of exceptional quality. The cool harvest period yielded smaller berries with exceptional flavour and structure.

about the harvest: The grapes were handpicked in the early hours from four premium wine regions: Stellenbosch, Durbanville, Darling and Franschhoek. This combination showcases the unique flavours from each region.

in the cellar : The grapes did not receive any skin contact and were gently pressed, retaining freshness. Fermentation lasted 3 weeks at 12˚C. A 4% component was fermented in new French oak barrels for 3 weeks, adding additional body and dimension. It was left on the lees for 6 weeks post fermentation, adding to the depth of flavour
