in the vineyard : 

Pinot noir grapes were harvested early in the morning from the last week of January till the middle of February. Most of our vines are planted in  red calcareous Karoo soils with good water holding capacity. Planting using a northwest to southeast row direction helps to protect the vines against heat waves.

about the harvest: 

Grapes were harvested between 18˚ - 20˚B.

in the cellar : 

A gentle pressing followed by Pneumatic bag press was used to capture the delicate fruit component. The wine was made reductively to prevent any oxidation and to retain natural flavours. Fermentation occurred in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 14 days at 12˚C. During bottling the wine is impregnated with CO2. The dissolved CO2 gives the wine its light sparkle and enhances the natural fruity flavours by making them more volatile. The result is a wine with more intense flavour.
