Available: Europe/UK

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.

in the cellar : 

The grapes were harvested by hand at 21º to 22,5º Balling, during February. The fruit was received at the cellar, the bunches destemmed, and the juice allowed a short period of skin contact for added aromatic expression. The settled free-run juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at a low temperature.
