Description

In The Vineyard
Grapes are sourced from vineyards predominantly in the Piekenierskloof region. These are bush vineyards and grow on koffieklip and sandy loam soils. Vineyards are planted in 1987, which makes the vines 28 years old. Vineyard are meticulously farmed and yields are managed down to below 7 tons per hectare.

Harvest Date
Middle to end of February.

Winemaking
Grapes were handpicked very early in the morning allowing the fruit to retain their natural flavor. Only the free run juice was used, allowed to settle and inoculated with selected yeast strain, fermenting under controlled conditions at 12°C.

Tasting Note
Upfront pears drops, pawpaw with juicy tropical summer melon on the palate. Nice mouth filling with hints of mango on a great fresh and crisp finish.
