in the vineyard : This wine is made from grapes harvested from the TOKARA vineyards in Stellenbosch, Elgin and the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley (Walker Bay).

about the harvest: The vineyards crop at between 4 and 10 t/ha and the grapes are harvested at various degrees of ripeness from 20.5 to 23 degrees balling, depending on acid, pH, flavour intensity and profile. A small portion of barrel fermented wine and 5% of Semillon is blended in to the wine.

in the cellar : The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed and pumped directly into our inert (oxygen free) press. Free-run and press juices were separated and settled overnight before being racked of the heavy lees and inoculated for fermentation with selected wine yeasts at around 15 degrees Celsius. After fermentation the wine was sulphured and left to mature on the lees for 6 months in stainless steel tanks with regular lees stirring before stabilisation and bottling.
