Knowing that all premium vineyards in South Africa are influenced by the ocean, Daniël realized during travels to Europe that South Africa does not have one cool continental vineyard like the famous continental vineyards of Europe. He started to search for this cool continental terroir locally. His quest took him to Sutherland in the arid Karoo. As a result, the first vines were then planted in 2004 on the sheep farm Kanolfontein, which then officially became the new Sutherland-Karoo wine growing region.

Grapes originating from the first vineyards in the newly allocated Sutherland-Karoo region. Highest vineyards in South Africa, planted at 1500m above sea level. Coldest wine growing region in South Africa. Single vineyard wine. Yielding 3 tons per hectare.

Fruit cold soaked for 10 days at 8o Celsius. Pumped over 3 times daily to maintain a low temperature in the cap. Whole-bunch fermentation at low temperatures. Both free-run and press juice were used.

Aged for 14 months in French oak barrels, of which 20% new. South Africa’s first true continental climate wine. All Organic practices.
