ageing : The wines’ balanced acidity will allow ageing for a good few years.

in the vineyard : Kapokberg translated as 'snowy mountain'. In days gone by, this hill, covered in white Spring flowers, resembled a snow capped mountain. At 459 m above sea level, it is the highest hill at Groote Post and bears the name of our vineyard selection wines.

Vines planted: 2000
Soil: Hutton & Oakleaf
Irrigation: Supplementary
Trellising: 7 wire extended movable Perold
Elevation: 280m

about the harvest: - A bumper crop this year did not detract from the excellent fruit we harvest from this specific vineyard site. We harvested at 2 different ripeness levels to cover the whole flavour spectrum.

in the cellar : The wine was fermented for 2 weeks in stainless steel tanks. It spent 3 months on the lees before filtration and bottling.
