Coastal Region (Cape Town Stellenbosch)

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS:

Sourced from the Tygerberg Hills and Stellenbosch, these vineyards are close to the Atlantic Ocean, benefitting from the calm winds cooling down the areas. Vines are a mixture of dryland and drip irrigation supplemented vineyards.

WINEMAKING:

Grapes were hand-harvested early in the morning and pre-cooled before hand-sorting, destemming and crushing. Skin contact was limited to four hours, and the free-run juice drained off to settle overnight before inoculation. Fermentation took place in 300L and 400L barrels. The wine matured for ten months in French oak barrels (10% new and 90% older).
