in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Darling, Paarl and Philadelphia areas. The vines, planted between 1969 and 1998, are grown in Clovelly, Hutton, Tukulu and Oakleaf soils at altitudes ranging between 80m and 120m above sea level. Grafted onto nematode-resistant rootstock Richter 99 and 101-14, they received supplementary irrigation from an overhead sprinkler system.

in the cellar : 

The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 21o to 22º Balling during February. The fruit was crushed and gently pressed to extract excellent quality juice. After clarification, the juice was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 15oC for three weeks. The vinification processes were strictly controlled to preserve the characteristic fruit flavours.
