The Journal represents the ultimate expression of Diemersdal terroir, the farm where six generations of the Louw family have been cultivating grapes for the making of fine wines.  The Journal implies the continuous, the living and the evolving.  It ensures the events of time are captured and recorded as momenta - reminders of generations past and a reference for generations to come.  The supreme quality of this range and the craftmanship with which The Journal wines are made, these are the result of Diemersdal's tradition and its previous generations of wine farmers.

in the cellar : The tight bunches of small berries, ideal for making wines of structure, elegance and refinement.  Carefully hand harvested at 26 Balling.  The grapes are crushed and fermented in 1-ton open French oak "kuipe" at 25-28 degrees celsius.  Malolactic fermentation in older French oak barrels before racking.

22 months oak maturation in 100% new 225L French oak barrels.
