ageing : Ready to enjoy now or within the next two years.

in the vineyard : The trellised Gewürztraminer vines, 16 years old at the time of picking and grafted onto Richter 99 rootstocks, are established in deep red Tukulu soils on the southern slopes facing False Bay. The sea breezes have a cooling influence on the vineyard during the summer months to decelerate ripening and make for more concentrated flavours.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand at 24° Balling in mid-February.

in the cellar : Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks.
