The 2016 is an Estate wine, produced from own-grapes only.

The grapes were selected from Vergelegen’s Rooiland vineyards, Blocks 4,6,9 and 11, chosen for its unique and cool micro climate. These particular vineyards have carefully defined irrigation and canopy management practices to ensure a balanced crop size.

The grapes were hand-picked from 18-29 February 2016 and transported in 10kg lug boxes to the Winery and stored overnight in a refrigerated container at --10° C. The following day the grapes were hand sorted, de-stemmed and cold soaked at 8-10°C for 7 days before yeast inoculation. After alcoholic fermentation the wine was left for a further 35 days on the skins.

16 months oak maturation in second and third fill 225 litre barrels.

Food pairing
