AWARDS
Veritas 2001 - Bronze
in the vineyard : Grapes were sourced from selected vineyards blocks, some as high as 430m above sea-level, in Stellenbosch and Durbanville. The trellised vines are between 14 and 9 years old, growing in medium-textured soils with good drainage but also good water retention. They are situated on south and east-facing slopes offering protection against the late afternoon heat and tempered by breezes from both the Atlantic and Indian Oceans to ensure slow and even ripening.

about the harvest: The grapes benefited from a cooler than usual ripening and harvesting period and were delivered in outstanding condition. The grapes were hand-harvested on taste at between 22º and 24ºBalling from the middle to the end of February.

in the cellar : Each vineyard block was separately vinified, with the juice left on the skins for two to four hours and fermented at between 16º and 18ºC for 10 to 15 days.
