VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS
Sourced from the Tygerberg Hills and Stellenbosch, both these vineyards are close to the Atlantic Ocean, benefitting from the cool winds cooling down the areas. Vines are a mixture of dryland and drip irrigation supplemented vineyards.
Grapes were hand-harvested early in the morning and pre-cooled prior to 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 10 months in French oak barrels (10% new and 90% older barrels).
