Description

In The Vineyard

Grapes are sourced from Fairtrade certified vineyards predominantly in the Swartand region. These vineyards are trellised and grow on sandy, loam soils. The vineyards are meticulously farmed and managed to yield below 8 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

Lots of juicy ripe plums and black cherries on the palate with aromas of spice and freshly cracked black pepper. Medium to full bodied with a refreshing aftertaste. A fantastic barbeque wine and a great partner to game meats.
