Stark-Condé Wines is located in the picturesque Jonkershoek Valley in Stellenbosch. It is a dramatic valley with steep changes in vineyard elevation from 150 to 600 metres, making for a range of sites with distinct characteristics. At Stark-Condé they stick to traditional winemaking methods: open tank fermentation, meticulous sorting of grapes, hand-punchdowns, basket pressing, and maturation in small French oak barrels.

This is an old vineyard located on one of the highest slopes on our farm. The block was under contract to another winery for many years and this is just the second year we have ever made wine from the grapes. The soils are a moderately textured decomposed granite. It is an excellent site that gives a nice balance of flavour.

The grapes were pressed and allowed to settle naturally and racked slightly "dirty" to barrel for fermentation. Mainly older, neutral oak was used. Malolactic fermentation was not encouraged, but a few of the barrels inevitably go through naturally. The partial malo and lees stirring helps to balance the higher acidity and give the wine some added palate weight.

After about 8 months on the lees the wine was carefully racked, given a light fining and bottled with minimal filtration.
