Ageing
Cellar

Fermented separately, berries was crushed and cold-soaked for 24hours at 12 °C, then inoculated with selected yeast that would compliment each varietal. The must was fermented in 5 ton open Stainless steel tanks with aerative hand punch downs every 4 hours to extract all colour and flavour to express the fruit purity and terroir. 

Fermentation for 7 days at temperatures between 24-29 °C after which extended skin maceration followed. The wine was matured for 18 months in a combination of 300L French oak barrels, of which 45% was new.

Harvest Another dry growing season with similar amounts of rain than previous. 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. Early during harvest a 70mm thunder storm slowed things down for 10 days without too big an effect on quality. Harvest was completed by end-March with a 5% overall decrease in yield from previous year.
Vineyard Vineyard: These low-yielding vines are drip-irrigated to ensure optimal ripening and trained on the 5-wire-Perold-trellis system. It’s planted on soils consisting of weathered granite on clay. Vines are planted on north facing slopes. The nearby Atlantic Ocean (False Bay) also has a cooling affect on the vineyards during the ripening season.
