in the vineyard : Oakleaf / Kroonstad soils, with drip irrigation delivering a production of 8 tons/ha. Canopy management was controlled to preserve the vegetative characters of the grapes and a cool harvesting period helped with keeping the flavours in the grapes until it reached the cellar.

about the harvest: Grapes were picked early in the morning.

in the cellar : The grapes were stored at 6°C until the next morning before being destemmed and gently crushed to preserve the flavours of the grapes. All the cultivars were fermented at 12°C and spent 2 months on lees. Blended before stabilization.
