in the vineyard : Isabel Habets (Viticulturist) The grapes were sourced from trellised (100%) vines in the Stellenbosch and Darling areas. Situated at altitudes ranging between 100 m to 500 m above sea level, these vines grow mainly in deep red soils with some sandy loam on mainly south-facing vineyard slopes.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand, from late January to late February, at 22° to 24° Balling to offer a spectrum of ripeness from light green and flinty to fuller, more tropical flavours.

in the cellar : This wine is made from entirely Sauvignon Blanc grapes.
