in the vineyard : The fruit was sourced from 43 specially selected grape growing families in the Robertson Valley. Vines are grown in deep cool alluvial soils on the river-banks, ideal for the growing of choice Sauvignon Blanc grapes and receives an annual rainfall of only 280mm per year.

about the harvest: The first grapes of the 2002 harvest were harvested on the 28th of January. A challenging vintage with more rain up until the end of February than other years. Quality of the grapes harvested, especially the Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, was of an exceptional high standard. This is due to even ripening conditions right through the vineyards.
Yield (ton/ha): 15 Tons.

in the cellar : The wine was harvested at optimum flavour from a selection of vineyards. Keeping the fruit separate throughout fermentation, wines were produced with varying flavours and palate weight allowing a diverse choice when it came to blending.
