in the vineyard : The grapes are harvested from a two vineyards on the Klein Môrewag farm in the Swartland area. The soils are mainly duplex and glenrosa. The vines are in natural balance, giving a low yield of 8 tons per hectare to enhance fruit complexity.

about the harvest: The grapes are hand selected and harvested in small crates.

in the cellar : Upon arrival at the cellar, the grapes are destemmed and crushed . Cold maceration for two days is given to extract maximum flavours and colour. The wine is fermented in small stainless steel tanks with regular pump overs. The malolactic fermentation is done in 300 litre French oak barrels and it is aged for another 18 months in the wood. This blend of 70% Shiraz and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon is blended to perfection before bottling.
