in the vineyard : These vines (planted in 2000) are drip-irrigated to ensure optimal ripening and trained on the 5-wire Perold trellis system. Vines are planted in soils consisting of weathered granite on clay. The nearby Atlantic Ocean (False Bay) also has a cooling effect on the vineyards during the ripening season.

Growing Season: Early January thunderstorms deposited nitrogen in the soils, resulting in a last growth spurt in the vineyards and slightly delayed ripening. Moderate and dry weather during early harvest period ensured perfect ripening conditions.

about the harvest: A cold wet winter and spring (with snow on 30 August 2013) meant a somewhat later than usual harvest

in the cellar : This wine is made in the old tradition of second fermentation in the bottle. This MCC was made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes. Carefully selected on the 5th of February 2014 early in the morning at 19.5 Balling and then whole-bunched pressed. After a very gentle pressing only the finest free-run juice was used to make this wine.
