in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from vineyards in and around 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.

in the cellar : The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 23º to 24,5º Balling from the end of January to mid-February. They were crushed and cool-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks at 25ºC to 28ºC for approximately two weeks. After malolactic fermentation the wine was matured in contact with selected French and American oak for a period of 12 months.
