in the vineyard : Signal Gun, a family run winery, is situated in the Durbanville region.

Be assured that the tasteful memories of our wines will keep on echoing.

about the harvest: A dry winter with cold and windy conditions resulted in a lower yield. Grapes were picked at optimum ripeness.

in the cellar : Made semi reductively. No skin contact took place, used clean juice to cold ferment. 20% was matured in new French Oak, the balance in tank and blended together prior to bottling.
