The vineyard at Warwick ranges between 24 and 26 years old, first planted in 1991. It is NW facing. The Helderberg vineyard is west facing.

Specifically, selected Stellenbosch sites, 2 on the Helderberg that add more freshness and acidity to the wine and one form Warwick on a warmer West facing slope on the Simonsberg, adding textural elements to the wine. All three vineyards are picked separately at different ripeness levels to add complexity.

Whole bunch pressed and juice allowed to clear naturally before transferred to 228L Burgundian French oak barrels for fermentation, all natural yeast. Barrels are rolled once a month for nine months before a tight selection process and blending early in 2019. Light filtration before bottling in February 2019.

Food pairing

Grilled Pork tenderloin glazed in apricot marmalade served with creamy cannellini beans and a herb salad. Glazed butternut Gnocchi with sage cream sauce and toasted seeds.
