The vineyards are selected from some of the coolest sites in Stellenbosch. These vineyard sites are influenced by southerly breezes during the summer months which have a beneficial effect on the ripening of the grapes.

Trellised vineyards with supplementary irrigation grown on mainly decomposed granite soils.

Fermentation initiated in stainless steel tanks. The crushed grapes underwent a series of pump overs until dry. Further maceration was allowed before drawing off and light pressing. Malolactic fermentation was completed in French oak barrels.

The wine spent 18 months in 25% 1st fill French oak barrels the balance in second, third and fourth fill barrels.

Food pairing

Grilled and roast lamb with garlic and rosemary.
