in the vineyard : Viticulturist: Eben Archer
Planted in 1993, the vineyards grow in deep, red Tukulu soil found on southern slopes facing False Bay. The sea breezes that rise from the bay have a significant influence on the vineyard as they cool the vines during ripening. This variety has been grafted onto Richter 99 and trellised on a five-wire system. The vines received supplementary irrigation from an overhead sprinkler system.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand at the end of January at 23° Balling.

in the cellar : The winemaking (winemaker: De Wet Viljoen)
The grapes are crushed and cool-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks using Maurivin 350 yeast.
