in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from vineyards across the Western Cape. The viticulturist works hand-in-hand with the grape growers in managing each vineyard block to ensure the best quality fruit for this wine. The different microclimates and soil types associated with each vineyard add to the complexity of the wine.

in the cellar : 

The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 23º to 25º Balling from mid-February until the end of March. The fruit was crushed and fermented on the skins in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks at 25º to 28ºC for two weeks. Upon completion of malolactic fermentation, the wine was matured in wood for a period of 10 months.
