Cellar

The grapes were handpicked early morning in small lug boxes from 20 up to 22.5°balling ripeness over a period of 3 weeks starting early February. Oxidation was kept to the minimum to retain natural fruit flavours. Grapes lightly pressed, juice cold settled after which it was racked, inoculated and cool fermented in stainless steel tanks between 12-14°C for 14 days.

Harvest Harvest began mid-January and was completed end March with similar yields to previous year.
Vineyard The 9ha vines were planted over the period of 2003 up to 2010 with 2.5m spacing. Soils consist of weathered granite on a clay base. The vines are drip-irrigated to ensure optimal ripening and trained on a 5-wire Perold trellis system. Vines benefit by having the cool breezes from the nearby Atlantic Ocean (False Bay) during the ripening season.

With the Western Cape coming out of a 3 year drought period it looked promising but many vineyards had not yet recovered in full. In general a cooler growing period with unfavourable weather during flower and set in October and November which led to smaller berries and bunches with unevenness for some cultivars at harvest. Weather was good with start of harvest until March when it turned into cool and wet conditions which necessitated greater input to control disease outbreak.
