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 soil types, Oakleaf with dark brown coloured porous subsoil is dominant together with Tukulu and Dundee soil formations on the mountain. The necessary irrigation is done on a few blocks due to the magnificent soil types and a 7 wire hedge trellis system keep these delicate foliage of the vines in place. Hand selected from specific blocks at dawn to keep grapes cool for vinification, providing optimum flavour characteristics.

about the harvest: Grapes were hand picked in the early hours of the harvesting day from designated vineyard blocks.

in the cellar : They were destemmed and crushed before undergoing a controlled cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine was stabilised, filtered and then bottled into a lightweight 350gr bottle before being distributed.
