THE RANGE
The Winemasters ensemble, comprising a top-quality range of varietal offerings, is named to honour the Paarl winery’s long-established tradition of winemaking excellence. These classically styled, food-friendly wines with abundant fruit flavours, elegance and finesse, treasure the integrity of the grapes in every step of the wine-growing and winemaking journey. Every drop demonstrates an unwavering commitment to world-class vineyard and cellar skills.

in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Durbanville and Paarl areas. The vines, situated some 120m to 160m above sea level and planted between 1984 and 1993, are grown in Tukulu and Oakleaf soils. Grafted onto nematode-resistant rootstock Richter 99, the vines received supplementary irrigation.

about the harvest: The botrytis cinerea (noble rot) grapes were strictly selected and harvested by hand at 35º to 40º Balling during April.

in the cellar : The fruit was destemmed in the cellar prior to pressing, given extended skin contact and then cool-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks at 16°C. The wine did not undergo malolactic fermentation, but rather put through a separator to prevent fermentation from occurring once the desired sugar and alcohol levels had been reached. The wine also did not undergo wood maturation. The wine was blended, stabilised and sterile-filtered before bottling.
