ageing : Maturation potential: The tannins are ripe and accessible, but will provide structure for extended ageing in the bottle. The different wines in the blend were purposefully selected to provide different layers of flavors to increase complexity. With further cellaring the 2005 Grand Plaisir will gain in complexity and character over the next seven to twelve years.

in the vineyard : Grapes were sourced from vineyards in Simondium. The vines, ranging in age from 7 to 15 years old, are situated between 130 m and 300 m above sea level on the south-eastern slopes of the Simonsberg.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested from the end of February to the middle of March at between 24,2° and 25,5° balling.
