Vineyards planted in 1905 and grown in granite soils in the Franschhoek Valley.

Grapes are harvested from 28-year-old vines grown in sandy Tukulu soils on the banks of Franschhoek River. Very low yielding at 4.5tonnes/ha. Rickety Bridge Semillon grapes were hand harvested at 23.1 ̊ Balling into small crates.

Fermentation took place in the small French oak barrels, 15% new and 85% older barrels using a naturally occurring yeast. The must was fermented between 14 - 17 ̊C and the lees was stirred up daily for two months and then once every two weeks for the next 3 months thereafter.

The wine was then left to age for a total of 11 months in barrel.

Food pairing

Red Thai chicken curry, roast gammon, smoked salmon, shellfish, and Asian cuisine.
