Vineyards planted in decomposed granite and sandy soils with north and westerly facing slopes were identified in the Franschhoek and Stellenbosch areas to make this Mediterranean-style blend. Well-manicured and settled vines yielding between 5 - 6 tonnes / ha. Grapes were harvested by hand between 22.2° – 23° Balling with good harvesting conditions throughout.

Naturally fermented in barrels at 16˚ C. The grapes were pressed gently up to 0.9 bar pressure after a short period of skin contact. Partial malo-lactic fermentation took place in older 225L French oak barrels and a 2500L oak Foudre.

All five varietals were matured separately in barrel for a total maturation time of 10 months before being blended for bottling.

Food pairing

Asian influenced chicken and seafood dishes, goats cheese salad, pork, veal or roast duck.
