in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from vineyards situated in the Western Cape. The vines are situated on south to south-westerly facing slopes at altitudes of 60m and 80m above sea level. The vines, grafted onto nematode-resistant rootstocks Richter 99, R110 and 101-114, received supplementary irrigation by means of an overhead sprinkler system.

in the cellar : The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 22 to 23º Balling during February and March. After pressing, the juice was fermented in stainless-steel tanks with wood chips and kept on the fermentation lees for three months prior to blending.
