in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Paarl, Stellenbosch and Durbanville areas. The vines, situated some 80m to 120m above sea level and planted between 1969 and 1998, are grown in Clovelly, Hutton, Tukulu and Oakleaf soils. The vines are grafted onto nematode-resistant rootstock Richter 99 and 101-14 and vineyard management protocols are followed for optimal grape quality.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 20º to 22º Balling from mid-January until the end of February.

in the cellar : 

The fruit was crushed, pressed and then settled. The clean juice was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for a period of three weeks at 15ºC after the wines were racked off the lees. The different components were fermented separately and only blended once fermentation was completed.
