in the vineyard : About the area
South Africa's vineyards are mostly situated in the Western Cape 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
The 2011 harvest in the Western Cape was warmer and drier than normal, resulting in lower yields, smaller bunches and consequently riper flavours. These seasonal conditions produced fully ripe and healthy grapes, with resultant wines rich, soft and generous in flavour.

about the harvest: Harvest Date: February

in the cellar : Maturation: 1 - 2 months of wood maturation.
