Webber comments that the wine shows an appealing array of green figs, peppers and subtle gooseberry, with good balance and an elegant, yet forthcoming complexity.

ageing : Guy Webber says it will reach its full complexity within the next two to three years and recommends enjoying.

in the vineyard : The vineyards are situated on the only south-facing portion of land on the property, planted at an altitude of 170 metres above sea-level. Grown in a combination of decomposed granite and Table Mountain sandstone, the 16-year old vines are now at full maturity. They were pruned at the end of August 2002 to maintain a yield of 4.82 tons per hectare.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand in mid-February at between 22.6° and 24.7° Balling.

in the cellar : The grapes were destalked and crushed before separating the juice from the skins to avoid tannin extraction. Fermentation took place over two weeks at between 14° and 16°C. Lees contact was allowed for three months after completion of alcoholic fermentation, with a racking enabling the wine to clarify naturally for four weeks before bottling.
