about the harvest: Good rainfalls and ideal cold weather conditions during winter ensured good nutrient storage and led to sufficient underground water levels for the growing season. The early growing season with moderate day time temperatures and cool evenings produced even budding. A mild December / January provided ideal ripening conditions for the first Pinotage grapes, however heavy rains in early February resulted in difficult harvesting conditions. Mild temperatures had a positive effect on cultivars picked later in March which resulted in grapes harvested at optimal ripeness producing good colour and aroma extraction.

in the cellar : 4 days on the skins at 26°C in open fermenters. Punch downs were done every 2 hours during fermentation. After malolactic fermentation the wine aged in 15% new and 85% second and third fill French oak barrels for 16 months.
