ageing : 

Ideal for drinking now, it will retain its vibrancy for 5 years

in the vineyard : Planted in 2008, this vineyard is made up from the high quality SN24 clone and grafted onto R110 and grow in decomposed granite and Table Mountain sandstone. The vines are vertically trellised on VSP systems. The south-west and north-east facing vineyards are exposed to the cooling effect of False Bay breezes which protract ripening and make for more concentrated intensity of flavours.

about the harvest: 

The grapes were harvested late February at between 22˚ and 24˚ Balling.

in the cellar : After crushing and clarification by floatation, the juice was inoculated with selected dry yeast and cool-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks at 12˚ C. Following the completion of fermentation, the tanks were topped up and the wines left on their lees in order to gain in complexity before being blended and readied for bottling.
