With keen foraging skills, the Bat-Eared Fox is our ally, removing unfriendly pests with a more nuanced and natural approach. A friend of the vineyard, this wine is inspired by the bat-eared fox’s wide-eyed curiosity and discerning taste.

in the vineyard : In our quest to source unique and exclusive vineyards, we visit many sites and meet interesting farmers along the way. In the past few years, we have noticed a definitive move towards sustainable vineyard practices and the preservation of natural flora and fauna. The goal is to establish long term relationships with these growers and promote their innovative approach to sustainability so that the wines we produce today, can be enjoyed for generations to come.

in the cellar : Grapes are sourced from selected sites in Perdeberg , Breedekloof and Stellenbosch. Harvested at optimal ripeness for concentration of colour and typical plummy characters. Mash was cold soaked and softly worked during early fermentation to achieve depth of colour and concentration. Portions were fermented in French Oak to achieve sultry mocha notes.
