These vineyards are situated on the farm DeMorgenzon in the Stellenboschkloof. Soils are mostly weathered granite which gives the resultant wines a natural exuberance and youthful vigour. The trellised vineyards are managed to ensure natural high acidity and full flavour concentration.

2015 was one of the earliest vintages on record and careful attention had to be paid in the vineyards to ensure ripe fruit was harvested. This was achieved through effective crop thinning and selective harvest. Soil moisture levels had to be managed to extend the ripening as late as possible. Disease pressure was low and fruit health and fruit concentration was excellent. The earlier vintage resulted in more prominent tannins, hence the extraction in the winery was adjusted accordingly.

Fruit was carefully hand sorted and naturally fermented,whole berry. Post fermentation macerationwas allowedfor twoweeks, followed by gentle pressing.

Maturation was for a total of 18 months in French oak, in a selection of 300 litrecasks and 3000 litreFoudres.The wine was bottled with minimalfining and a minimal filtration.
