"There is a power within the succulent grape That made thee, stronger than all human power. It baffles death in its exulting hour, And leaves its victim fortune to escape. Thy cheering drops can magically drape Atrocious thoughts of doom with bloom and flower, Turning to laughing calm care’s torment sour, And flooding dreams with many a gentle shape." – Francis Saltus Saltus

Our viticulturist and winemaker are passionately involved in maintaining the unique terroir of our vineyards nestled on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain. This poem is testimony of the love and passion with which we transform our grapes into great award-winning wines.

Desiccation (drying) of stalks was done on selected Sauvignon Blanc batches to allow for increased concentration of sugar levels. Whole-bunch grapes were cold-soaked for 12 hours, then pressed-off to holding tanks and left to settle for 2 days. The clean juice was racked (transferred) to old French oak barrels and inoculated with select yeast strains. Fermentation was stopped through filtration, to achieve a certain sugar level.

Maturation in old 225L barrels lasted 5 months.
