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. “The age of a vine in itself does not guarantee quality wine; it must still be planted in the right soil. The soil is crucial. It must be well drained with a high clay content to ensure a steady, but moderate water supply during the hot summer months of the Cape.”

One of the gems of the Cape, rich in heritage; as one of the oldest blocks of Pinotage in South Africa. A Single Vineyard, bushvine, planted in 1960. This vineyard was named after Thomas, the person who used to work with horse and plough in this vineyard on the old Canettevallei Farm. Hand harvested, sorted and de-stemmed. Yielding less than 3 tons per hectare.

Cold soak for ten days at 8’C and fermented up to a maximum of 30’C. Manual punch downs and basket pressing.

Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels. Only 900 bottles total production.
