in the vineyard : 

The fruit is sourced from 35 specially selected grape growing families in the Robertson Valley. The Pinotage vineyards are grown in the lime rich karoo soils with fairly high clay content. This soil enables growers to use regulated deficit irrigation to control vine vigour and berry size. Pinotage quality benefits a lot if quite severe water deficit are induced between berry set and veraison. 

about the harvest: 

After a strict vineyard selection the selected fruit was harvested from middle February to first week in March.
Grapes were harvested at full ripeness between 23.5° - 26.5° Balling from a selection of vineyards.
