in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from mostly dryland, bush vine and trellised vineyards in the Darling and Swartland areas. The vines, established some 200m to 350m above sea level, grow in deep and well-drained, decomposed granite soils.

in the cellar : 

The grapes were harvested by hand at 22º to 24º Balling from mid-February to mid-March. The grapes were crushed and gently pressed to extract excellent quality juice. Fermentation took place in stainless-steel tanks for two weeks at 15º C. After fermentation, the wine was racked from the fermentation lees and the components from different areas blended together. The wine was then kept on the lees for three to six months before bottling. A small portion of the wine (2%) is oaked, to deliver a creamy texture on the palate.
