AWARDS
Veritas 2002 - Bronze

ageing : Enjoy now, but will develop over the next three to five years.

in the vineyard : The fruit was sourced from our 43 specially selected grape growing families in the Robertson Valley. Vines are grown on the lower mountain slopes where the shale and sandstone soils are rich in lime with a high pH and receives an annual rainfall of only 280 mm per year.

about the harvest: The first grapes of the 2001 harvest were harvested on the first of February. Quality of the grapes harvested, especially the red varieties, was of an exceptional high standard. This is due to a dry season characterized by stable temperatures that developed healthy grapes and eventually even ripening with good sugars.
Yield (ton/ha): 8 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. The wine underwent maturation for 9 months in French Oak.
