In The Vineyard
Grapes are sourced from Fairtrade certified vineyards predominantly in the Swartland region. These 13-22 year old vineyards are trellised and grow on oak leave soils. The vineyards are meticulously farmed and managed to yield below 6 tons per hectare.
Middle to end February.
Grapes were machine harvested very early in the morning allowing the fruit to retain their flavour. Only the free run juice was used, allowed to settle and inoculated with selected yeast strain, fermenting under controlled conditions at 12°C.
A complex wine with a crisp acid and aromas of fresh cut green grass and asparagus. Well balanced with a clean fresh finish.
