in the vineyard : Grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Durbanville, Stellenbosch, Paarl and Darling areas. The grapes are grown in decomposed granite on slopes suiting the cultivar, ranging in altitudes at between 50 m and 150 m above sea level. The vineyards were planted between 1985 and 1995. The vines, grafted onto nematode resistant rootstock Richter 99, R110 and 101-114, are grown under dryland conditions and receive supplementary irrigation by means of an overhead sprinkler system.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand at between 18° and 19° Balling during mid-February.

in the cellar : They were crushed and then cool-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for two to three weeks at 13° C, before being left on the skins for 1 day.
