56HUNDRED range: The legacy left by our original Winemaster The price it took to start a legacy in 1791. One man’s faith in the future gave him the courage to invest 5600 guilders for a life of lasting great taste. When every vintage is worth the wait - smooth drinking every time. Juicy and generous wines with vibrant fruit flavours.

in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Darling, Paarl and Philadelphia areas. The vines, planted between 1969 and 1998, are grown in Clovelly, Hutton, Tukulu and Oakleaf soils at altitudes ranging between 80m and 120m above sea level. Grafted onto nematode resistant rootstock Richter 99 and 101-14, they received supplementary irrigation from an overhead sprinkler system.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 21º to 22º Balling during February.

in the cellar : The fruit was crushed and gently pressed to extract excellent quality juice. After clarification the juice was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 15ºC for three weeks. The vinification processes were strictly controlled to preserve the characteristic fruit flavours.
