VINEYARD

Vines are drip-irrigated to ensure optimal ripening and trained on the 5-wire Perold trellis system. Planted in soils consisting of weathered granite on clay, the vines are situated on south facing slopes. The nearby Atlantic Ocean (False Bay) has an additional cooling effect on the vineyards during the ripening season.

GROWING SEASON AND HARVEST

Yet another dry season with similar amounts of rain than 2016. Mild weather from mid-October through to end January got things off at a steady pace. A couple of cool evenings during flowering resulted in less bunches/crop and unevenness at harvest. Partially through harvesting the white and early red varieties a 70mm thunder storm slowed things down for a week without too big effect on quality. Harvest was completed end March with a 5% overall decrease in yield from previous year.

VINIFICATION

These perfectly ripe grapes were gently pressed to avoid any harsh phenols. After settling for 2 days, the juice was then racked and fermented at cool temperatures and left on the lees to enhance depth of flavour and texture. 70% of the blend was fermented in stainless steel tanks and the other 30% was fermented in French oak barrels.

FOOD PAIRING

Enjoy at 10-12°C with Seared Scallops, crispy bacon, salsa, gremolata & rocket.
