Description

In The Vineyard

Grapes are sourced from Fairtrade certified vineyards predominantly in the Piekenierskloof region Swartland. These 13 to 16 year old vineyards are trellised and grow on sandy, loam soils. The vineyards are meticulously farmed and managed to yield below 6 tons per hectare.

Winemaking

Grapes are handpicked and cold soaked for 24 hours. Fermentation is initiated with selected yeast strains and is kept under 26°C. Malolactic fermentation is completed in tank and the wine is matured for 6 months, using French and American oak.

Tasting Note
