The grapes were sourced from low-yielding, trellised vineyards in the Darling area with 25% hailing from Stellenbosch. The Darling vineyards are grown on south to south-westerly facing slopes in deep rich soils. The unirrigated vines grow under dryland conditions. The yield varied between 2 and 5 tons per hectare for the older vines and up to 7 tons per hectare for the younger vines.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand at 19° to 23,5° Balling from early to late February.

in the cellar : The different vineyards were separately vinified and fermented. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at temperatures ranging between 12° and 14°C, depending on the yeast strain used.
