2019 Veritas Wine Awards - Gold

ageing : Enjoy now or cellar for the next 5 years.

in the vineyard : The wine was produced from selected vineyards in Stellenbosch (False Bay) and Darling. The 2018 vintage was warm and after 2 years of drought the vineyards started to show signs of stress and the yield were lower than normal. Canopy management was minimum because we wanted the bunch zone protected from sunlight.

about the harvest: The grapes were picked very early in the morning.
The harvest was 7 days earlier than normal with lower sugar levels and thus alcohol.

in the cellar : The grapes were picked very early in the morning. Every process from picking to bottling was done super reductive with dry ice being added in the bins in the vineyard already. After destemming and crushing we gave at least 24hours skin contact. Only the free run juice was settled for 1 day and then racked to the fermentation vessel. It was inoculated with selected yeast strain and fermentation took place at 13°C. The wine spent 10 months on the primary lees before being blended and bottled.
