in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Paarl, Durbanville, Philadelphia and Stellenbosch regions. These vineyards are situated on south- to south-westerly facing slopes, at altitudes of 60 to 80 m above sea level. Grafted onto nematode-resistant rootstock Richter 99, R110 and 101-114, the vines grow under dry-land conditions and receive supplementary irrigation by means of an overhead sprinkler system.

in the cellar : 

The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 24º Balling during February and March. The fruit was crushed and then cool-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for a period of two weeks at between 25º and 28ºC. The wine was matured in contact with French and American oak for four months.
