in the vineyard : A wet 2013 winter, a lack of strong winds during flowering and unpredictable weather conditions during harvest presented a challenging vintage. However, the subsequent quality is fantastic and resulted in excellent extraction along with full, ripe flavours.

about the harvest: The grapes were handpicked in the early hours of the morning from selected vineyards on the Helshoogte and Helderberg Mountain.

in the cellar : The grapes received four hours of skin contact to acquire the perfect colour. Grapes were gently pressed, fermented for nearly 3 weeks at 12°C and then left on primary lees for 6 weeks post fermentation. The wine is made in the same style as Sauvignon Blanc to maintain the lovely fresh fruit characters.
