ageing : 

Ideal for drinking now, it will retain its vibrancy for at least 5 years.

in the vineyard : Cloned from French plant material and planted between 1997 and 2009, the vines are grafted onto Richter 99 and Richter 110 rootstocks and grow in Tukulu soils. The vines are vertically trellised on hedge systems of varying height according to their individual vigour. They receive supplementary irrigation through a drip system when necessary. The south-west facing vineyards are exposed to the cooling effect of False Bay breezes which protract ripening and make for more concentrated intensity of flavour.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand during the first week of February at between 22° and 23,5° Balling.

in the cellar : After crushing and clarification by flotation, the juice was inoculated with selected dry yeasts and cool-fermented in temperature controlled stainless-steel tanks between 13° and 15° C. Following the completion of the fermentations, the tanks were topped up and the wines left on their lees in order to gain in complexity before being blended and readied for bottling. Total production was 4,846 cases (6 x 750ml) with bottling taking place first on 12 March 2020.
