in the vineyard : Grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Durbanville, Stellenbosch, Paarl and Darling areas. The grapes grow in Clovelly, Hutton, Tukulu and Oakleaf soils at between 100 m and 150 m above sea level. The vineyards were planted between 1980 and 1999. Grafted onto nematode resistant rootstock Richter 99 and 101 – 14, the vines received supplementary irrigation from a micro irrigation system while some vineyards grow under dryland conditions.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at between 22° and 24° Balling from mid-February to end March.

in the cellar : They were crushed and then cool-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for two to three weeks at 13°C. No skin contact was allowed and only the free-run juice was used. The wine was left on the lees for just over three months until blending.
