about the harvest: The grapes are from the fertile valley of Tulbagh. The grapes were harvested in late January 2012 in the cool of the morning, at 22ºB to enhance the full tropical fruit flavours. The juice had a high natural acidity, therefore no adjustments were needed.

in the cellar : After 24-hours of skin contact , the free run juice was settled overnight. Thereafter it was raked and inoculated with fruit driven yeast. Fermentation took place at 12-14ºC for 16 days. The wine was kept unfined and unfiltered till before bottling to keep the freshness.
