in the vineyard : 

The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Western Cape. Grafted onto nematode-resistant rootstock Richter 99 and 101-14, some of the vines received supplementary irrigation from a micro-irrigation system while in other instances, fruit was grown under dryland conditions. Yields averaged around 8,5 tons per hectare.

about the harvest: 

The grapes were harvested by hand at 21º to 23º Balling in February and March.

in the cellar : 

The fruit was crushed and gently pressed to extract quality juice. Fermentation took place in stainless-steel tanks at 15° to 16ºC.The fermenting wine was put through a centrifuge separator once the desired sugar and alcohol levels were reached.
