Blend Information

50% Syrah, 35% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre

In The Vineyard

The fruit in the Night Sky comes mainly from our Estate vineyards with a portion of Grenache Noir coming from the Swartland.

In The Cellar

A blend of Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache the wine is made in a southern Rhône style. All varieties are grown on the farm and are hand picked into fermentation vessels of either concrete or stainless steel. The ferments are allowed to proceed naturally and are hand plunged as required until they are dry. Once the ferment is finished the vessels are allowed to undergo post ferment maceration on the skins. This usually lasts around 8 weeks. They are tasted often and when they are ready, pressed off into 500L French oak barrels.

This wine is matured for approximately 24 months in 500L oak barrels of which 20% are new.

Additional Information

The Night sky is named after the vast and beautiful stars that light up the nights on our isolated farm and is also a nod to biodynamics, which we practice meticulously in the vineyards.
