AWARDS
2019 Veritas Awards: Double Gold
in the vineyard : Origin: Coastal Region – specifically from a small section of a south-west facing vineyard in the cool Tygerberg Hills.
Terroir / Soil: Rich Oakleaf and Swartland soils only 16km from the ocean. The cooling effect of the sea breezes in summer takes the edge off the heat, giving the berries a longer ripening period.

about the harvest: A Dryland - Single Vineyard with an age of 18 years yielded the grapes for this wine. The best fruit of this specific vineyard was harvested between 23ºB and 24ºB at a yield of 8 tons per hectare.
Grapes were hand-harvested early in the morning in lug boxes of 10 kg each.

in the cellar : Grapes were pre-cooled before hand sorting, destemming and crushing. Skin contact was limited to 6 hours and the free run juice drained off to settle overnight before inoculation with a selected yeast strain. The fermentation took place under controlled temperatures between 12° - 14° C. The wine matured for 6 months on the lees before bottling.
