in the vineyard : Terroir - Rooted in deep fine granite Tukulu soils on the slopes of the Helderberg, these vineyards enjoy the refreshingly cool breezes from the Atlantic Ocean during the hot summer
months, resulting in even ripening of the berries.

Viticulture - A minimum interference approach is taken in the vineyards to get a true reflection of the unique terroir. Vines are pruned & suckered to get a evenly spaced shoot
position which results in maximum flow of cool air through the bunches.

about the harvest: Grapes are handpicked in February with an average yield of 6 ton/ha.

in the cellar : Grapes were handpicked and delivered to the cellar in small crates to minimize oxidation and crushing. All grapes were whole bunch pressed to stainless steel tanks to settle overnight. The wines were fermented naturally at 14° - 16° C and were further made with minimal interference in the cellar. After fermentation the wines were left on the lees for 4 months before blending and bottling.
