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. Vineyard established in 2007 on virgin soils.

Hand-sorted grapes, less than 3 tons/ha. Fruit cold soaked for 8 days at 8oC. Low fermentation temperatures.

Aged for 13 months in French oak barrels. Manual punch downs are carried out until fermented dry. Manual Basket press is used – Free run and pressed juice used. All organic practices.
