in the vineyard : 

The fruit was sourced from mostly dryland, trellised vineyards in Darling and Paarl. The Darling vines are planted between 200m and 350m above sea level in deep red decomposed granite (Oakleaf type) soils. The vineyard in Paarl is established in soils of sand and decomposed granite.

about the harvest: 

The grapes were harvested by hand at 22 to 24º Balling from mid-February to mid-March.

in the cellar : 

The grapes was crushed and gently pressed to extract excellent quality juice. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks for two weeks at 13 to 15º C. After fermentation, the wine was racked from the fermentation lees and the components from different areas blended together. The wine was then kept on the fine lees for 3 to 6 months before bottling. A small portion of the wine (10%) is oaked.
