in the vineyard : The 2013 conditions produced crops of exceptional quality. The cool harvest period and slow ripening of grapes resulted in smaller berries with exceptional flavour and structure.

about the harvest: The Shiraz grapes were handpicked in the fresh hours of the early morning from a selection of cool vineyard sites in the Stellenbosch region.

in the cellar : The wine was matured for twelve months in old French oak barrels to maintain the freshness of this varietal. Fermentation took place at cooler temperatures to ensure gentle extraction of fruit flavours.
