in the vineyard : Terroir
Vineyards are mainly planted along the coastal zone and toward certain inland areas of the Western Cape Province of South Africa. Mainly Malmesbury shale and Cape granite soils.

Trellised vines with an average age of between 12 and 18 years. Mediterranean climate, but the cooling effect of prevailing winds and breezes from the nearby oceans bring the average temperatures down. The vines received supplementary irrigation and produced between 10 to 14 tons per hectare.

about the harvest: The grapes are machine-harvested early in the morning while its still cool and the grapes temperatures are low.

in the cellar : 

We work reductively and minimise oxidation to protect the flavours in the juice. Grapes were gently pressed, and only the best juice fermented in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine spent 4 months on lees to bring complexity, before clarification and bottling.
