in the vineyard : Climate / Quality of the soil:
Cool breeze micro-climate, one of the highest vineyards in South Africa with temperatures 6°C cooler than the valley giving our grapes slow ripening. Our vines thrive on the decomposed high mineral granite Oakleaf with sub –dominant Glenrosa, Tukulu and Clovelly soil formations on the mountain. Controlled irrigation and 5 and 7 wire hedge trellis systems for optimum ripening. Hand harvest in January at dawn to keep grapes cool for vinification. Most of the Sauvignon Blanc vines are grown at the highest (500m above sea level) and coolest area giving optimum flavour characteristics.
