Tinta Barocca is one of the most commonly planted grape varieties in the Douro, Portugal. It is one of the five varieties allowed in the production of port. Tinta Barocca was the first Portugese variety planted in South Africa. It is used in to make port style wines and has historically been a very important part of blended red wines because of its good colour and natural acidity. Tinta Barocca from older vines lends itself to the production of premium red wines with great character and complexity.

in the vineyard : The Tinta Barocca used to produce this wine is grown as dryland bushvines on the slopes of the Paardeberg in the Swartland. The vines were planted in 1971 in decomposed granite with a portion of coffee stone. Due to all of these factors the yield from this vineyard is naturally very low and the grapes have great colour and concentration.

in the cellar : The bunches are destalked and the fermentation takes place in temperature controlled open top fermenters with punch downs four times a day. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel and the wine is aged in barrel for a total of 17 months.
