Description

In The Vineyard

Grapes are predominantly sourced from Fairtrade vineyards in the Swartland region. These 16 to 20 year old vineyards are trellised and grow on red oak leave soils with gravel underground. The vineyards are meticulously farmed and yields are managed down to below 7 tons per hectare

Winemaking

Grapes were handpicked and cold soaked for 24 hours to obtain the desired extract and character, fermentation is started with selected yeasts strains under controlled conditions at 26 °C. Malolactic fermentation also took place in tank and was matured for six months on French and American oak staves.

Tasting Note

A medium bodied wine with ripe black plum fruit with violets and black pepper. Pairs well with roast poultry and barbequed meats.
