in the vineyard : About the area
South Africa's vineyards are mostly situated in the Western Cape region, near the coast. This is the southernmost region of the African continent and has a Mediterranean type climate and diverse soils, perfectly suited to quality grape production.

Vintage conditions
Cool temperate conditions during the growing season resulted in small, concentrated berries. Veraison was even, therefore ensuring even ripening of grapes. The period was characterised by low disease incidence. During harvest, the cooler than average summer temperatures resulted in an excellent balance between sugar and acid. Lower yields deliver a well balanced wine that offers intense fruit flavours.

about the harvest: Harvesting took place middle of March to the beginning of April.

in the cellar : Maturation
8 - 10 months wood maturation.
