Private Collection is an ultra-premium ensemble of five single varietal wines and a blend, produced from top-performing vineyards, and exclusive to travel retail. Our viticultural and winemaking teams work jointly to identify fruit in each vineyard for this luxury range. Hand-picked grapes that stand out for their fine balance of fruit, acid and sugar, for their exceptional concentration and depth of aromas are reserved for Private Collection wines.

in the vineyard : The fruit for this wine was sourced from selected top-performing vineyards situated 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. Each block was picked at optimum ripeness and vinified separately.

in the cellar : The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 22º to 23,5º Balling, from mid-February until the end of March. The fruit was crushed and then cool-fermented on the skins in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks at 25º to 28ºC for two weeks. The wine was aged in new, second- and third-fill French, Eastern European and American oak barrels for 25 months before final assemblage.
