The collection range of wines aspires to be easy-drinking but also true to their terroir. The emphasis lies on smooth tannins and fruitexpression of the specific cultivar.

in the vineyard : VINEYARD: The 9ha vines were planted over the period of 2003 up to 2010 with 2.5m spacing. Soils consist of weathered granite on a clay base. The vines are drip-irrigated to ensure optimal ripening and trained on a 5-wire Perold trellis system. Vines benefit by having the cool breezes from the nearby Atlantic Ocean (False Bay) during the ripening season

GROWING SEASON: In retrospect the season was very similar to 2015 with even less rain and drier conditions. Hot weather from midOctober through to end January restricted growth which in turn resulted in lighter bunches and concentrated berries with a average 15% decrease in yield. These conditions also led to healthier vineyards and disease free grapes with promising wines.

about the harvest: The grapes were handpicked early morning in small lug boxes, from 22° balling up to 24.5° balling ripeness over a period of 3 weeks, starting end of January. Oxidation was kept to the minimum to retain natural fruit flavours.

in the cellar : Juice settled for 48 hours and was then fermented between 12° - 14° C for 14 days.
