56HUNDRED range: The legacy left by our original Winemaster The price it took to start a legacy in 1791. One man’s faith in the future gave him the courage to invest 5600 guilders for a life of lasting great taste. When every vintage is worth the wait - smooth drinking every time. Juicy and generous wines with vibrant fruit flavours.

in the vineyard : 
The grapes were sourced from trellised and bush vineyards across the Western Cape. The vines were planted between 1980 and 1995 in sandy, decomposed granite and alluvial soils, situated at altitudes of 50 m to 100 m above sea level. Grafted onto nematode-resistant rootstocks Richter 99 and 101-14, some received supplementary irrigation from a micro-irrigation system while others grow under dryland conditions. Yields averaged 10 tons per hectare.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand at 21º to 22.5º Balling, during February.

in the cellar : The fruit was received at the cellar, the bunches were destemmed and the juice allowed a short period of skin contact for added aromatic expression. The settled free-run juice was carefully fermented in stainless steel tanks at a low temperature. After the completion of the alcoholic fermentation the young wine was allowed to rest for five months on the fine lees in order to enhance its structure and mouthfeel.
