The grapes were selected from an assortment of Shiraz vineyards in the Stellenbosch region. The vines were grown in and a cool Mediterranean climate using a five-wire system within loamy clay soils.

in the cellar : 

The grapes were harvested at 22º Balling to preserve its primary fruit characters, fresh acidity and strawberry pink colour profile. Fermentation took place on the skins for approximately eight to 12 hours, until desired colour was extracted. The juice was separated from the skins and completed its primary fermentation stage at 14º – 16º Celsius in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation the wine is protein and cold stabilised prior to bottling.
