The name Pella means “place of gathering” which refers to the union of terroir and vines. When I started my search for exceptional single vineyards right through the Western Cape many years ago, there were several factors I had to keep in mind, e.g. the right variety for the right slope, bush vines versus trellised, depth of the soil, clay content, microclimate, age of the vines and equilibrium of the vineyard. All of these are factors that are crucial to the quality of the wine in the end. My search for coastal vineyards was all about perfect equilibrium. I looked for older vines with minimum vegetative growth, therefore a good balance.

Hand harvested, sorted and de-stemmed. Old dryland bush vines, producing low yields of concentrated fruit. East-facing slope. Yielding 3.5 tons/h. Vineyard benefits from a cool microclimate, with a combination of clay, sandy and shale soils.

Whole bunch fermented at low temperatures. Manual punch downs are carried out on a daily basis until fermented dry. Manual Basket press is used, both free run and press juice used.

Aged for 12 months in predominately French oak barrels.

Food pairing

Beef, Cured Meats, Duck, Lamb, Hamburger, Ostrich.
