ORIGIN: Western Cape
Vineyards are mainly planted along the coastal zone and toward certain inland areas of the Western Cape Province of South Africa. Mainly Malmesbury shale and Cape granite soils.
VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS
Trellised vines aged between 13 and 19 years received supplementary irrigation and produced 10 to 14 tonnes per hectare. Mediterranean climate, with the temperatures lowered by the cooling effect of prevailing winds and sea breezes.
The grapes were machine-harvested early in the morning while it was still cool and the grape temperatures were low. In the cellar, we worked reductively, minimising oxidation to protect flavours. Grapes were gently pressed and only the best juice was fermented in stainless-steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine spent a few months on lees to bring complexity, before clarification and bottling.Download recipe card
