in the vineyard : 

Soil: Decomposed granite
Dryland vineyards overlooking False Bay on the Southern side of Stellenbosch yielded the fruit for this unique wine. The decomposed granite soils assist with water retention as it contains a high proportion of clay.

Temperature: winter 10° - 17°C; summer 14° - 28°C
Annual rainfall: ±450mm
Proximity to ocean: 7km

about the harvest: 

Grapes were hand harvested to minimize damage to the berries.

in the cellar : 

Grapes were harvested by hand (to minimise damage to the berries) and chilled before bunch sorting. After de-stemming, the berries were hand sorted to remove raisins, pink berries and large berries. Partial natural fermentation took place in stainless steel; the balance was inoculated with a particular yeast strain. Free-run wine was drained to a combination of firstand secondfill French, American and Hungarian oak barrels where it matured for 20 months. Barrel selections were conducted to ensure a balanced, cool-climate Pinotage with great complexity and ageing potential.
