in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Paarl, Malmesbury and Philadelphia areas. The vines, situated on mostly south to south-westerly-facing slopes and grafted onto Filloksera-resistant rootstocks Richter 99 and 101, received either supplementary or drip irrigation. The yield averaged 6 to 8 tons per hectare.

in the cellar : 

The grapes were harvested by hand at 21o to 22.5º Balling during February. The fruit was crushed and gently pressed to extract excellent quality juice. Once fermentation was underway, 80% of the fermenting juice was transferred to a combination of new and second-fill French oak barrels, where the wine remained on the lees for approximately six months.
