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 22º to 23º Balling during February and March. After pressing, the juice was fermented in stainless-steel tanks at 16° C for approximately two weeks. Prior to blending the wine was kept on the fine lees for three months.
