in the vineyard : This wine is blended from various Cabernet Sauvignon blocks on the farm with vines planted in sandy top soil over a deep clay base layered with calcareous deposits. This restrict yields naturally and together with the cooling False Bay winds the grapes ripen easily without losing too much of their natural acidity. This almost near perfect natural balance between growth and yield necessitates only a very light summer canopy management program.

in the cellar : Wood Maturation
22 months in 300 litre French oak barrels.
