in the vineyard : 80This wine is made from a single bushvine vineyard on our farm, Klein Amoskuil in Malmesbury. These un-irrigated bushvines were planted in 1997 on Koffieklip soil.

about the harvest: The grapes were hand picked, on 28th January 2015

in the cellar : The bunches were fermented in 5-ton open concrete fermenters with manual punch-down of the skins twice a day, extracting deep colour and flavour. The wine was pressed off and transferred to tight-grain American oak barrels for malolactic fermentation, of which half were seasoned barrels. The wine matured for 11 months before bottling.
