Made from a combination of estate vineyards and specially selected vineyards on neighbouring farms. All the vineyards lie on the south western edge of the Paarl region. The climate is Mediterranean – i.e. cold, wet winters and dry summers. Soils are a combination of decomposed granite and Malmesbury shale. Vine age varies from 15 to 19 years.
The grapes were hand-picked, de-stemmed, lightly crushed and then fermented in small open-topped tanks. The varietals were harvested and fermented separately. After 10 months maturation in a combination of seasoned oak barrels and stainless steel tanks, the various batches were blended and the wine was bottled.
