in the vineyard : – Rooted in the oldest viticulture soil in the world, it is made up of decomposed granite on the lower slopes of the Helderberg Mountain. This vineyard enjoyed the refreshingly cool breezes from False Bay (Atlantic Ocean) during the day and cool night air flowing down the mountain, resulting in even ripening of the berries and good natural acidity. The macro climate is maritime, with cold wet winters and sunny warm summers.

about the harvest: Harvested by hand in the early morning in small picking bins to ensure that perfect grapes reached the cellar. Biodynamic (organic) practices are followed and therefore no herbicides or chemical sprays were used in the cultivation of these grapes.

in the cellar : Grapes were whole bunch pressed and naturally fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine was left on the lees for 3 months before being racked. The wine is bottled without the use enzymes or fining agents.
