in the vineyard : The grapes are sourced from vineyards in the Piekenierskloof region, with low yields the norm. Each component was picked and handled separately. The vineyards were harvested in late February with the grapes picked early in the morning to preserve flavour. The bunches were de-stalked prior to crushing.

in the cellar : After a gentle pressing, the free-run juice settled for two days before being racked, and then the wines were cold fermented in stainless steel tanks. Each element was fermented separately. All the wine was left on fine lees before blending, and minimal cellar interference followed before final bottling.
