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. This vineyard enjoyed the refreshingly cool breezes from False Bay (Atlantic ocean) during the day & cool night air flowing down the mountain, resulting in even ripening of the berries & good natural acidity. The macro climate is maritime, with cold wet winters & sunny warm summers.br /br /Origin: Driefontein, Helderberg, Stellenbosch

about the harvest: Biodynamic (organic) practises are followed & therefore no herbicides or chemical sprays were used in the production of these grapes. The fruit was hand picked in the second week of February 2014 in small picking bins to ensure that perfect grapes reached the cellar.

in the cellar : Whole bunch pressed, natural yeast fermentation in older barrels where the wine aged for 10 months before being bottled after natural settling, without the use of fining agents or filtration. .
