WINEMAKER:
Johan Jordaan

ORIGIN:

Coastal Region 

TERROIR/SOIL:

The vines are grown in a combination of Oakleaf, Clovelly and Glenrosa soils. Located just 15km from the coast, the vineyard benefits from a cooling Atlantic Ocean breeze that gives the berries a longer hang time, encouraging slow ripening. These conditions create concentrated grapes with intense flavours.

WINEMAKING:

The fruit was harvested in the early hours of the morning to retain freshness and acidity. Skin contact was limited to six hours and the free-run juice drained off to settle overnight before inoculation with carefully selected yeast strains. The fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperatures between 12° and 14°C. A small portion of the Sémillon was fermented in French oak barrels to add complexity to the wine. The wine matured for 3.5 months on the lees before bottling.
