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.

Harvested from old bush vines.

Cold soaked for 11 days at 8ºC under a CO2 blanket. Thereafter the wine was fermented up to a maximum temperature of 26º Celsius. Pumped over 3 times daily to maintain a low temperature in the cap of solids. Both free-run and press juice were used.

18 months in new French oak barrels.
