2016 was an exceptionally early vintage with grapes ripening quickly. Warm evening temperatures necessitated early harvest to ensure fruit with sufficient natural acidity.

Vertical shoot positioned vineyards allow for optimum ripening and ideal sunlight exposure of fruit. There is a good exposure of slopes to cooling Southern breezes off False Bay. Vineyards are established on slopes with soils of weathered granite and sandstone. Yields are controlled to between 7 and 8 tons per hectare.

Grape varieties were picked across a range of different ripeness levels, sorted and whole bunch pressed after pre- chilling. Fermentation occurred naturally in small French oak barrels and cement eggs.

Total ageing was 10 months from vintage with blending occurring after 8 months. A light filtration and fining took place before bottling.

Food pairing

Pairs well with a wide variety of seafood dishes, especially shellfish, cod, lobster and crab.
