To Life!

in the vineyard : The Shiraz was harvested from trellised vineyards in Paarl and Stellenbosch. The Cinsaut is from bush vines in Paarl. The Mourvèdre is primarily from dryland bush vines in the Swartland and the Piekenierskloof with a small percentage from vineyards in Stellenbosch. The juicy Grenache noir is from Paarl and Darling. The Petite Sirah, also known as Durif, is from decomposed granite soils grown in our trellised Paarl vineyards. All the grapes are 100% Fairtrade.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested during February and March 2014

in the cellar : The grapes were destalked and lightly crushed into stainless steel tanks. Each grape variety and vineyard was fermented separately. The must was inoculated with Rhône yeasts and pump-overs were done up to 4 times a day during fermentation. After alcoholic fermentation the wines were racked to tanks and barrels for malolactic fermentation. The wine was matured in both tanks and barrels prior to blending, stabilization and bottling.
