The natural environment, in particular, soil, topography and climate, influence the flavour and quality of grapes. It is this sense of place that imparts a wine with its characteristic taste and flavour. Our winemaking team continually strive to increase this expression of place during growing and winemaking - in order to craft characterful wines – a process we describe as 'dancing with stones'.

in the vineyard : Grapes are sourced from Fairtrade certifies vineyards predominantly in the Swartland region. These are trellised vineyards and grow on koffieklip and oak leaf soils. The vineyards are meticulously farmed and yields are managed down to below 6 tons per hectar.

about the harvest: Grapes were handpicked middle to end February very early in the morning allowing the fruit to retain their natural flavor.

in the cellar : Only the free run juice was used, allowed to settle and inoculated with selected yeast strain, fermenting under controlled conditions at 12°C.
