The nose shows notes of concentrated orange and yellow stone fruits, with a hint of spice, citrus and blossoms. The palate is full-bodied, textured and nuanced with a lingering after taste.

in the vineyard : Vertical shoot positioned vineyards allow for optimum ripening and ideal sunlight exposure of fruit. There is a good exposure of slopes to cooling Southern breezes off False Bay. Vineyards are established on slopes with soils of weathered granite and sandstone. 2015 was an exceptionally early vintage with grapes ripening quickly. Cool evening temperatures ensured the maintenance of natural acids and low pH levels. Fruit was healthy with minimal disease pressure.

about the harvest: Grape varieties were picked across a range of different ripeness levels. Yields are controlled to between 7 and 8 tons per hectare.

in the cellar : Grape were sorted and whole bunch pressed after pre chilling. Fermentation occurred naturally in small French oak barrels and cement eggs. Total ageing was 10 months from vintage with blending occurring after 8 months. A light filtration and fining took place before bottling.
