This wine is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (62%) and Merlot (38%) grapes.

in the vineyard : 

The grapes were sourced from bush and trellised vineyards in the Paarl, Darling and Stellenbosch areas. Planted between 1990 and 1998, the vines are grown in decomposed granite on south-westerly facing slopes, situated some 50 m to 150 m above sea level. The vines, grafted onto nematode-resistant rootstocks Richter 99 and R110, are grown under dryland conditions while some of the vines received supplementary irrigation by means of an overhead sprinkler system.

about the harvest: 

The grapes were harvested by hand and machine between 23° and 25° Balling during February and March.

in the cellar : 

The fruit was crushed and fermented on the skins in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 25ºC to 28ºC for 10 to 14 days. Upon completion of malolactic fermentation the wine was matured in a contact with oak for a period of 15 months.
