in the cellar : 

Grapes originate from Swartland and Stellenbosch. Picked at 25 degrees Balling, sorted, de-stemmed, crushed and fermented at between 25 and 27 degrees Celsius. After fermentation, the wine was left on French oak staves in the tank to finish the malolactic process.Maturation: 50% of this blend was matured in 225 litre French oak barrels for a period of 9 months. The balance was oak- staved for 10 months, with added micro-oxygenation.

The blend was oak-staved, using premium French oak, for a period of 6 - 8 months. The French oak staves are used to enhance the fruit flavours and also lend structure to the wine.
