In The Vineyard
Grapes are sourced from Fairtrade certified vineyards predominantly in the Swartland region. These vineyards are trellised and grow on sandy, loam soils. The vineyards are meticulously farmed and managed to yield below 6 tons per hectare.

Grapes were handpicked very early in the morning allowing the grapes to retain their fruitiness and flavors. Cool crushed grapes underwent a three hour skin contact in static drainers before being fermented under controlled conditions at 13°C.
